Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
Reports of deliberate fires being set around the areas of Linden Farm Drive, Countesthorpe close to crop fields.
Issued: August 2018
What we are doing:We have received reports of deliberate fires being set on grassed areas around the areas of Linden Farm Drive, Countesthorpe, close to crop fields. We have been made aware by the Wigston Fire Service of two occasions on the 24th July, where deliberate fires have been set on the field behind Linden Farm Drive. We have started enquiries with local residents into any suspicious activities or people in that area during the hours of 9:30 am and 4:30pm. Thank you to those who are already assisting us, if you have any further information of these incidents, please call 101 and quote incident 0502 of the 24th. We are in contact with Blaby District Council regarding the length of the grass areas to try to prevent any further fires and also decrease the risk of quick spreading during this heatwave. The beat team will be conducting patrols in the location between the stated times to help deter further fire setting. Issued: August 2018
