3.45pm – Third abandoned 999 call of the day… sometimes these are pocket dials, sometimes children playing on a phone, however, all require review in case it’s genuinely someone in need of help, please lock your phones and move out of reach of children if you still have a landline.

4.16pm – Male reported causing a disturbance at a local doctor’s surgery, officers attempt to try and diffuse the situation, additional support needed to help the male, however, should this behaviour persist prosecution will certainly follow…

6pm - Officer assist hospital staff to locate a female that they have some concerns for, returned to hospital for appropriate treatment.

6.12pm – Call from concerned member of the public who has attended an address to purchase a car he has seen online, he has paid £100 to secure the vehicle attended the address and the occupant genuinely has no idea about the vehicle… sadly a scam and we believe the third time the address used for this purpose. 

Inspector Hughes added: "Please be careful online, never pay a deposit without first knowing who the seller is and that they actually are in possession of the item for sale.
