Good News
“On the 24th March 2016 an elderly female dropped her purse in Portland Road area of Hucknall.  The purse was subsequently picked up by a female offender who then ran off.  Assistance from a member of the public led to the arrest of the offender who has now been charged to court for theft.  The lady in question has had her property returned.  This is a prime example of community cohesion at its best.”
