Crime prevention initiative to protect Biddulph shoppers

VISITORS to Biddulph town centre have been handed free protection against thieves attempting to steal their money.

Bank card defenders and purse bells have been given out in a crime prevention initiative by local police.

The card defenders prevent criminals from skimming card details while purse bells alert holders to an attempted theft.

The project has been funded by a ¬£2,708 grant made by the County Police and Crime Commissioner’s People Power Fund to the Biddulph Community Safety Fund.
