Report of Suspicious Activity
Field to the rear of Maple Grove
At 1am this morning, Sunday 24th January a local resident reported seeing some people on the field to the rear of the address with torches.
They were looking along the fence lines of the property, shining the torches into gardens and were there for around 20 minutes before a dog has barked which has appeared to disturb them.
This field backs onto properties on Maple Grove / Yewdale Drive / Cedardale Drive / Blackthorn Avenue and their direction of travel is unknown.
If you live in any property backing onto this field can you please check to make sure everything is in order.
