Councillors concerned police are not being told about crimes in Latchingdon

Maldon and Burnham Standard: Latchingdon parish councillors Gill Winsor and Lynn Robinson Latchingdon parish councillors Gill Winsor and Lynn Robinson

Villagers are being urged to call police on suspicious activity as vandals continue to cause havoc and destruction.

Latchingdon parish councillors are campaigning to raise awareness of the importance of alerting police after residents have seemed reluctant to dial 999 in an emergency.

In a bid to crack down on a spate of vandalism, councillors Lynn Robinson and Gill Winsor will be leafleting every house in the village asking residents to keep on the lookout.

This comes after the village hall in Burnham Road was damaged between December 5 and 11.

One thousand pounds worth of damage was caused when vandals ripped off roof tiles and discarded them.

Paranoia inducing...

Crime in the heading becomes suspicious activity in the opening sentence.

'Havoc and destruction' would certainly have been noted by police.

Seriously a confused story...
