Police in Redcar are stepping up patrols on the High Street in response to a recent spate of purse thefts.

Officers have visited the shops in which the thefts occurred, and members of the public are being asked to be vigilant and report anyone acting in a suspicious manner. Shops can shout up over the 'Shopwatch' radio and the public can reach the police via the 101 number.

Officers have now secured a quantity of purse bells which can be collected from the Town Police Station on Lord Street. The front desk is manned between 9-5 everyday day, closing for dinner between 1-2. Police say the bells are free of charge and really do make a difference, so please feel free to pop in and collect some bells.
