Notts’ Police and Crime Commissioner confirmed this week that the long term future of Worksop Police Station cannot be guaranteed.

This is of great concern, especially as it follows hot on the heels of criminal court cases being taken away from the town.

Worksop is a growing town, not some tiny hamlet.

It needs a very visible police presence, and that means its own bona fide police station.

One of those police boxes of old, or some tiny shack that is manned once a week just won’t do, I’m afraid.

If Notts Police are serious about law and order in Worksop, then they will keep our police station.
