"There has been a large increase in reports of trees down and loose animals on the highways This is expected at this time of year, due to the high winds. I would urge all animal and land owners to check the security of their boundaries. Neglect of boundaries which allows animals to escape is a criminal offence and the person responsible may well be liable for prosecution, especially if a serious accident happens as a result! Motorists should also be aware of this seasonal risk, and adjust their driving style accordingly.

  • There has been a spate of burglary offences in the Dunkirk area, between Chester and Ellesmere Port, with a couple of businesses being broken into last weekend. There have also been a couple of reports of suspicious vehicles driving round the estate. One was described as a black Mondeo or Vectra and the other described as a maroon hatchback, partial registration M***YLD. Please try to record full descriptive details of any suspicious vehicles or persons and report this to the police.
  • Another suspicious vehicle was reported in Marlston-cum-Lache on Tuesday. A silver Peugeot 406 was driving onto private land and when challenged, the occupants asked for scrap metal. Police were provided with full registration details and so able to make further enquiries with the suspicious vehicle.
  • There have been two daytime burglary dwellings this week. One in Newton, Frodsham on Wednesday and the other in Hallfields Road, Tarvin on Friday. A further attempted burglary occurred at Foxhill Close in Sandiway on Friday. Please keep an eye on your neighbours' houses if you know they are out and report any suspicious activity.
  • There was one theft of vehicle registration plates reported this week, on Wednesday, from Rake Lane, Little Stanney. Please report any such offences as soon as possible, as stolen plates are often used soon after the theft, in order to commit more serious offences. If police get early notification, the stolen plates can be circulated quickly, which greatly increases the opportunity to catch the offenders."


    Regards

    Inspector Keith Curbishley
