Clitheroe’s Police and Community Together team has outlined the priorities it is working on for October.

These include focusing on anti-social behaviour in the Castle grounds and in the centre of town, particularly on the approach to November and Bonfire Night.

It was reported at the meeting that several vans and other vehicles had been broken into over the past few weeks, and commercial vehicle owners are being urged to park in a safe place and remove any valuables from the rear of vans at night.

Stickers stating that the vehicle is empty are available to collect from Clitheroe Police Station.

A recent rise in shoplifting in the town centre was also reported and police have identified a number of the offenders involved and will update on progress as they are brought to justice over the coming weeks.

Everyone is welcome to attend PACT meetings next month on the following dates and times: Wednesday November 6th at 10 am, Pendle Court, Hayhurst Street; Wednesday November 6th at 6-30 pm, St Anne’s Court, Low Moor; Thursday November 7th at 7 pm, Henthorn Community Centre, Hazel Grove.
