Leamington Editorial 10th Oct, 2023   0

THIEVES are putting lives at risk say fire chiefs following a break-in at Wellesbourne fire station over the weekend.

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service is calling on residents around the Loxley Road station to report to police any suspicious activity they may have seen on Sunday night (October 8).

Burglars forced their way in the service’s most up-to-date lifesaving rescue equipment.

Warwickshire County Council fire spokesman Andy Crump said “Unfortunately another one of our fire stations have been targeted by thieves and we are working with Warwickshire police to improve security on these sites.

“I urge the public to keep an eye open. Our fire stations are integral to how we protect our communities and we do not want their capacity to be compromised.

“Anybody who sees anything suspicious at any of the fire stations, please call 999 and report what you have seen to Warwickshire Police by calling 999.”
