Police seek witnesses to stabbing in Langley Green, Crawley

Police are appealing for witnesses to a violent incident at a house in Fitchet Close, Langley Green, Crawley, in which a teenage boy sustained potentially life-changing injuries after being stabbed.

The victim was attacked by three men, one of whom entered the property, at around 8pm on Sunday (4 March). He received a serious wound to his forearm, thought to have damaged nerves and tendons, which required surgery. Read more here.

 

 

Strap in to save lives - it's Seatbelt Week

With an estimated two million drivers in the UK still not wearing a seatbelt when they’re driving, Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) is reminding road users of the dangers of not belting up in their cars.

Along with colleagues at Surrey and Sussex Police’s Roads Policing Unit (RPU) and Surrey’s DriveSMART, SSRP want to reach the last 5% of drivers who do not see the benefits of seatbelts. There is a week dedicated to this, running from March 12-18, which has been implemented by TISPOL, the European Traffic Policing Network.

Although this week is still very much business as usual and enforcing this law is a daily occurrence for RPU, it does give an opportunity to raise awareness to a demographic of ignorant drivers. Read more here.



Vehicle crime prevention advice

The majority of this type of crime is opportunistic, and occurs because valuables have been left on view or the vehicle left insecure. If a vehicle is left insecure it only takes 10 seconds for your valuables to be stolen.

More advice for van, car and also caravan owners can be find here.
