Report any suspicious behaviour, urge police

Police are encouraging residents to report suspicious behaviour after a spate of criminal damage and vandalism in the Alnwick area.

“Mindless criminal damage will not be tolerated and we will do everything we can to stop those responsible for causing it.

“We have extra patrols around Alnwick during the summer months and we are here to help residents, deter criminals and ensure that the area remains a safe and pleasant place.”
