Two neighbourhood police officers who have served villages in north Northumberland are retiring.
Parish councillors met members of the neighbourhood policing team to pass on their thanks on behalf of the community for the policing service of PCs Andy Clark and Sean Amer. Between them, they have clocked up 55 years of policing service, including a number of years in the Wooler and Seahouses area.
PC Clark has developed and delivered teaching sessions for children in schools from Branton to Cornhill. His legacy will be the boxing club in Wooler, which he set up to give people somewhere to exercise, socialise and to direct their energy in a positive way.
PC Amer has used his CID experience to deliver advice on crime prevention throughout the areas around Seahouses, Wooler and Berwick.
PC Clark will work his last shift in August and PC Amer finishes in September.
