Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Vera Baird visited the Cheviot Centre in Wooler this week, the new home for the village’s police.

She said: “There was stress at Wooler about the closure of the police station, but we have a full complement of officers at the Cheviot Centre.

“The police are happy with it and the people are happy with it. We will not compromise on finding ways to keep police close to their communities.”
