MEMBERS of Clevedon’s police team gave out crime prevention advice to shoppers during the town’s busy market day.

The mobile police station was set up in Queens Square on Thursday and officers, joined by members of Clevedon PACT, also gave out purse bells and wallet alarms to prevent people from falling victim to pickpockets during the busy shopping season.

The day before, officers had also been talking to shoppers in Clevedon and Portishead in the hope of reducing car crime.

People were told to make sure they do not leave valuables on view in their vehicles and were also given tamper-proof screw sets to stop their number plates from being stolen.
