Weymouth streetlights to be turned back on after crime spree
1:30pm Friday 11th January 2013 in News
STREETLIGHTS in Littlemoor are set to be turned back on at night after a campaign by residents.
The decision follows a spate of arson and vandalism in the area.
Inspector Les Fry said: “We have listened to resident’s concerns that they don’t feel safe with the lights off.
“We have sent a request to Dorset County Council for the lights to be turned on within certain areas of Littlemoor.”
The council has intimated it would look positively on a request by police to turn the lights back on, according to Littlemoor councillor Rachel Rogers.
