Ruffley Campaigns for CCTV in Moreton Hall

Thursday, 13 November, 2003

Following serious incidents of anti-social behaviour in the Moreton Hall area on the night of Tuesday, 11 November, David Ruffley is campaigning for CCTV cameras in Moreton Hall.

David said: 'My constituents in Moreton Hall are becoming increasingly concerned by the anti-social behaviour of rival gangs in the area. Last night's incident caused panic among local residents who were at the scene. Although the police arrived within minutes action must be taken to deter the perpetrators.

I will be raising the matter with Deborah Cadman, Chief Executive of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, once I have received full briefing from Chief Inspector Gooch. My constituents must be able to live without fear of crime.'
