Lavery addresses crime concerns

I travelled to the Headquarters of Northumbria Policeto discuss the state of Policing and the seriously concerning rise in crime across the North East. 

Speaking to Chief Constable Steve Ashman, I mentioned the reduced hours of operation in Bedlington and the concerns for the safety of residents in the constituency as a whole.

Cuts are having devastating consequences on our communities and we must ensure that Police officers and support staff have the resources to do their jobs.
