Pleased with police’s work

VILLAGERS raised no new concerns with police at their latest meeting, despite good attendance.

The Ilkeston Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team, which covers West Hallam, Stanley Common, Dale Abbey and Morley, met last week for villagers to highlight their concerns about crime.

Pc Russ Crooks, from the team, said: “The residents felt that previous issues had been dealt with.”

Figures show that between April and October this year, crime is down by seven and a half per cent in the area compared to the same period last year.
