For sale: Police station

A FOR Sale sign has been put up outside Portishead Police Station.

Agents put up the sign just 10 days after Avon and Somerset Constabulary confirmed it was considering selling off the property.

If the sale goes ahead, the Portishead neighbourhood police team of 13 would be relocated to the force headquarters in Valley Road.

Fortnightly meetings which take place in a mobile police station in Portishead will continue as usual and the regular beat surgeries and PACT meetings with residents will remain unchanged.
