Arrests made as police crackdown on crime at retail park in Netherfield continues


Police have made two arrests as they continue with their crackdown on crime at Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield.

Officers say the initiative has been launched after a spate of thefts at the shopping area since coronavirus restrictions were lifted.

Yesterday, police officers spotted a suspicious vehicle on the retail park containing two men and a woman. They noticed that the car contained wine and gin which they suspected had been stolen from one of the nearby shops.
