West Midlands Police are advising not to give beggars money in Wednesfield!
West Midlands Police are continuing to receive reports of nuisance and persistent beggars in and around Bentley Bridge Retail park and High Street areas of Wednesfield, Wolverhampton.
West Midlands Police are working with Wolverhampton Council to bring about a long term solution to the problem which will see certain repeat offenders permanently banned from the area altogether.
Whilst this work is on going we are reminding local residents and visitors in the area NOT to give money to beggars or rough sleepers, as often this money will further fund various addictions that are in fact keeping them on the streets.
