Christmas Market Delivery Van Burglary and Car Theft (Leicestershire Police)


We hope you are keeping well and thank you for the ratings and feedback to our messages. Really glad that some residents find them useful and hopefully they hopefully raise awareness around local crime.

I will have a crime prevention stall at the Burbage Christmas market on Windsor Street this Friday (26th November). Road closures in place from 15:00 – 22:30, Stalls open from around 16:30 until late. Pop down and see our crime prevention items (sold at cost). I believe there are also rides for the kids, food stalls, lights around the Horsepool and St Catherines and much more in the area. Hope you can make it.

A garden fence was found burnt and bench smashed at the back of Forryan Road overnight on the 17th November. If you saw anything suspicious in the area on that night, please get in touch.  21000672062
