Alert: 10/09/2019 Members of the Community Road Safety team picked up the equipment from Blyth on Sunday and stashed some of the equipment in the Parish Councils locked container in the grounds of the village hall. When required for use today the high visibility jackets (3 off) were found to be missing. Now we do not believe that these highly visible jackets were rendered invisible through some metamorphic process that took place in the container, we suspect something a little more down to earth/sinister. It seems to us that persons unknown have “removed” them from the container (the village hall’s CCTV will be reviewed) with a view to use them on some other, less altruistic purpose than we had in mind. So if you have the jackets or know where they are, please return them to where you found them. They actually belong to the police.
Bad news however for speeding motorists is that the high value speed gun was not stored in the container and will most certainly be visible on exercise throughout Sutton over the next few days.
