I and other neighbourhood officers have been carrying out enquiries in relation to motorcycles driving anti-socially in the ward, particularly around the Altrincham Road and Moor Lane areas. These enquiries are often extensive as identification of the vehicles and drivers can be difficult. However, following a related incident earlier this week, officers were able to identify the driver and report them for anti-social driving and no insurance offences. Enquiries in relation to dangerous driving by a car and quad bike on Alderley Road last week are also progressing.

Incidents of anti-social driving could include, but are not necessarily limited to, pulling wheelies, driving continuously along a footpath and dangerous overtaking. Such occurrences can be reported to police by following the information provided at www.cheshire.police.uk/contact. An officer may subsequently be able to investigate a report if there is considered to be a viable line of enquiry, which could include registration or driver details, or clear photographic or video footage of the offence taking place and the vehicle and driver involved. All incidents may be beneficial for intelligence gathering purposes, so I would encourage people to report them, even after the event.

Patrols of Spring Street Multi-storey Car Park are continuing to tackle youth-related anti-social behaviour. Although incidents of large parties and damage are still occurring, progress is being made with the local authority to improve security at the facility and directly address the behaviour of young people by engaging the support of their responsible adults.

As the slow arrival of springtime hopefully brings more pleasant weather, please consider reviewing the security of your shed and outbuildings:
  • Consider investing in a robust padlock that is not easily breakable, particularly one that does not have exposed screws
  • Door and window hinges can be easily removed, so check that they are secured and well maintained. Use grills or wire mesh to protect windows being used as an entry point
  • Think about installing a battery-operated alarm that can detect entry and movement
  • Lock all tools away securely within the shed (using locked boxes and chains) and cover larger items with sheets to prevent them being viewed from the outside
  • Bikes and appliances can be locked to the floor using ground anchors, making them far harder to steal and acting as a deterrent
  • Always keep windows and doors locked
  • Don’t leave tools lying around that could be used to gain access to your shed or outbuilding
  • Join or create a Neighbourhood Watch or social media group (such as WhatsApp or Facebook) for your street, allowing you to share useful information with neighbours and keep an eye out for each other.
