This is an update from the Safer Community Team, Daventry Rural Beat, Northamptonshire Police.
Over the last couple of weeks, there has been an increase in reports of theft of garden machinery from outbuildings and suspicious activity around vehicles and by people.
On a positive note, it is great that people are reporting these incidents to the Police. On a not so positive note, it is sad to hear that incidents are happening and not getting reported because in the people's words, "Nothing gets done", or that people have been on hold for 20 minutes calling 101. More »
Calling 101 is the main way of contacting the Police, but are you aware that crimes can also be reported via the force website https://www.northants.police.uk/forms/? Rather than not reporting, please use the force website.
Without being told about incidents, the Police cannot assess the incident, link it to other crimes and then conduct patrols accordingly.
The biggest message from the Community Safety Team is, please, please, please, follow your gut feeling. If it doesn't feel right, it most probably isn't so report it via 101 or the website. » Less

WORK TO RESURFACE THE M1 BETWEEN JUNCTION 20 AND 21, LEICESTERSHIRE
These works are planned to start on 5 September 2016 and finish on 28 January 2017. The hours of work will be overnight from 8 pm to 6 am, although these times will vary daily depending on traffic volumes. The carriageways will be open as usual during the day. In order to minimise disruption full overnight closures will be kept to a minimum and most work will be carried out overnight using a reduced number of lanes. Highways England will renew the carriageway and reinstate the road markings, road studs, traffic counting loops and bridge joints. This will maintain the integrity of the road surface and improve driver safety and comfort. They will also be using a quieter 'Noise Reducing' material on a section of the M1 near to Junction 21 at Enderby. During the works there will be full overnight closures of various sections of the carriageway, for the safety of road users and our workforce. There will be fully signed diversion routes, agreed with the local authority.
Please note that all planned roadworks are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Highways England will do is very best to complete the work as quickly as possible, keeping disturbances and noise to a minimum.

The Communities and Local Government Select Committee, which consists of eleven backbench Members of Parliament, has launched an inquiry into public parks to examine the impact of reduced local authority budgets on these open spaces and consider concerns that their existence is under threat. The Committee will look at how parks should be supported now and in the future. The Committee wants to encourage as many people as possible to contribute to the inquiry. In addition to a face-to-face survey in parks across the country, the Committee is organising an online survey, web forums and a Twitter hashtag, #myparkmatters, where people can let the Committee know why they value their local parks.
