Police Urged to Act!

Good Morning Wednesfield -Its Saturday 11th April 2020- The weather is fine again today,but the last 24 hours has been a nightmare for Wednesfield North, with youths riding Mopeds and Scramblers, according to witnesses, and having no care for the Corona Virus laws, relating to staying at home.

Yesterday afternoon I had numerous residents contacting me, all very annoyed, some very angry.

There was anger raised at the guys who were flouting the law, and there was calls for the Police to patrol and capture some of the perpetrators.
I contacted Wednesfield Police station and I also received a crime log from Birmingham later in the night. I will again raise the matter with the Police, and I have been passed some intelligence that I have lodged with the Police.

Turning to the vandalism that has sprung up around the Ashmore park Shops and other sites in Ashmore.
I despair, this is just yet another issue that has raised its head. Its not good news and it drags down the area we live in. If anyone knows who is behind this, please tell the Police or me.
