Rural Fylde Conservatives are today demanding action from police bosses over the reduction in police cover in Wesham and the removal of resources in Kirkham.
Each ward is covered by a PC who is the beat manager and a PCSO who between them give up to 16 hours cover a day. However, following the removal of the PC and the PCSO from Kirkham North ward, Wesham’s own PC and PCSO are having to cover.
Commenting, Councillor Simon Renwick says,
“When this slipped out at a Wesham Town Council meeting I was appalled. I cannot believe that two wards are being covered one team. I’m taking this fight to the bosses at the police HQ as I feel this is unacceptable.”
