Arrest Follows Club Fire A 13 years old boy was arrested on suspicion of arson after fire destroyed a disused social club in Crewe. The boy was released on police bail while further inquiries are carried out.
Damage Results in R.J Four young men carried out a litter pick during a busy evening in the centre of Nantwich as part of a Restorative Justice solution to a disorder incident. They also wrote apologies to the owners of cars and a fence which they damaged after a night’s drinking and each of them paid £60 compensation. Sergeant David Jones said, “The men genuinely regretted what they had done and the litter pick seemed a good way to publicly acknowledge the fact. The victims agreed. In the right cases RJ can be a very effective conclusion.”
Safe Future for Free Runners A Police Community Support Officer in Nantwich initiated steps to prevent “Free- Running” becoming a problem in the town. PCSO Stuart Mortimer said, “We had a few complaints about damage being caused by young people as they leap on to and over fences, benches and buildings while they are free-running in the town centre. They need to be able to carry out the sport where it will not trouble anyone”. Stuart linked up with local councillors, the young people involved and their parents. As the Nantwich Free Runners, they have launched a bid for money to build a free-running course in Barony Park.
