A recent spate of opportunist break-ins to parked vehicles have occurred recently around Tapton Hill Road and the surrounding streets.

Trustees at Crosspool & District Youth Sports Trust (CDYST) have noticed that twice in the last month someone has tried to gain access to the mower storage shed around the back by pulling off the door handle and trying to wedge something in to break open the lock.

They’re asking anyone passing to keep an eye on the Coldwell Lane property – especially round the back – and report anything suspicious by calling 101 or contacting the trustees.
