Burglary on Moss Lane- Leighton


29/4/21 Throughout the night from 00.00 - 09.00 on MOSS LANE, LEIGHTON a burglary occurred in an outhouse of one of the farms. If anyone has any information regarding the incident please call 101 quoting reference 975751.
Currently you have less chance of being a victim of crime in Cheshire than in neighbouring areas (such as Merseyside & Manchester), with your chances of being a victim of Burglary significantly lower.
However a criminal is simply looking for the opportunity to commit crime, or is suddenly hit by a tempting situation. If we remove that temptation, or make it difficult for someone, then it is estimated that a staggering 90% of crime would be prevented.
Alarms
Have an approved alarm fitted in your home – ask your local officers or your insurance company for advice.
If you have an alarm fitted - ensure your alarm is working correctly.
Use it at night. Most systems can be ‘zoned’.
Locks
1 in 3 burglaries occur due to an open or unlocked window or door – so always close and lock all doors and windows when you go out or to another part of the home where you wouldn’t hear someone.
Fit kite marked mortise deadlocks or bolts to outside doors and gates, and locks with keys to all downstairs or easily accessible windows. Keep keys out of sight. Patio and French doors can be protected by fitting purpose made locks.
Make it difficult for burglars by locking all side and back gates.
Lights
Make the home look occupied when you are out or away,
Use automatic timers to switch on radios or lights Leave lights on in the bedroom and bathroom, not just in the hall.
Fit lights that come on at night to cover the sides and back of your house

Keep them out of sight of windows.
Make items traceable. Postcode them with a UV pen or specialist traceable liquids or register them on www.immobilise.com
For all emergencies please call 999.

From there the crew will cycle six miles to the top of Mount Snowdon, and then descend (six miles to Snowdon, then ascend and descend) the mountain back to Capel Curig.
On the final day the team will cycle more than 60 miles back to Chester Fire Station.
In total the crew will travel more than 121 miles and ascend over 13,000 feet.
All of the money raised by the crew will be split between two chosen charities - the Firefighters Charity and the Joshua Tree Trust.

Tollemache Drive Incident 3-5-21


Good Afternoon,
We are writing to you today with an appeal for information regarding an incident that has occurred in Leighton late 3/5/21.
Most of you probably heard the Police Helicopter up just before midnight and this is connected with an incident at the Tollemache Mini Mart (formerly the Bargain Booze off Parkers Road).
At around 10:10 hours a male entered the shop and threatened the member of staff with what is believed to be a firearm. He then left the shop around 10:15 hours with a quantity of cash. It is believed the male turned left onto Parkers Road and then ran up in the direction of Moss Lane. Currently, we have no further information regarding his direction of travel so we are making this appeal to see if we can get more information.
The description of the male is, white, in his 20s/30s and was wearing a wait length coat that was a close in colour to Khaki or Beige. He also had a rucksack a similar colour.
If anyone you speak to has any information whatsoever regarding this incident, please reply with the details, or alternatively call 101 and quote IML-979460.
Regards,
PC MARTIN & PCSO OLIVER

Council’s Swab Squad pilots rapid testing advice in supermarkets


Cheshire East Council’s Swab Squad, a team dedicated to supporting both residents and local business with Covid-19 testing, is piloting a new rapid testing service across the borough.

A new mobile pop-up service to offer a walk-in collection service for rapid symptom-free home testing kits will be located at Asda in Crewe tomorrow (6 May), with other pop-up services being trialled at Tesco and Morrisons in Crewe later in the month.

Operating from 10am–2pm, (weather dependent), the squad will be on hand to answer any questions that residents may have about the kits before they are taken home. 

Residents will be aware that this Thursday is polling day, therefore this mobile unit provides an excellent opportunity to collect home testing kits and receive any advice needed, while out and about visiting their nearest polling station in Crewe.

Dr Matt Tyrer, director of public health for Cheshire East Council, said: “This is the latest of a number of trials that we are conducting to help increase access to these rapid tests and to make sure that we are targeting our resources to locations that suit residents best.

“We recognise that home testing plays a crucial role as part of our wider testing programme. We believe that home testing provides a convenient and easily accessible solution for many, while our assisted service at our testing sites provide a simple and streamlined process, producing high-quality results for reporting and monitoring purposes.

“Our Swab Squad will be on hand at the mobile units offering advice and information about our testing programme, including: where you can get a test, how to carry out the tests, how often and what to do next in the event of a positive result.

“If the pilot is successful, we will look to increase the service to be able to test on site, look at new locations and increase our number of mobile vans.”

For regular news and updates about this new service and other local testing facilities available residents can follow the Swab Squad on their Twitter page @CEC_SwabSquad
