Police Scotland officer Wayne Bedford has given an update to Fraserburgh Community Council at their recent monthly meeting.

The Police officer began by outlining the number offences which had occurred in Fraserburgh in the past month.

The Community Council was told that, since the previous meeting, there were: 24 assaults; 17 vandalisms; one house break-in; 19 shop-liftings; six drugs possessions; three drugs offences in relation to the supply of drugs; and six street drinking offences.

Community councillors were also told that officer Wayne Bedford is to become a full-time Community Officer along with another part-time Community Officer.

Together, they hope to concentrate on policing in the town centre and become involved with the Shop Watch and Pub Watch schemes.

Officer Bedford also said the Community Officers will be visible in the community and they plan to get involved with upcoming local events such as Super Saturdays.

Following the Police Report, Councillor Brian Topping raised the issue of young people driving “unauthorised bikes” at Broadsea; people using quad bikes at the Waters of Philorth; and the perennial problem of drinking and anti-social behaviour at the Broch beach.

Meanwhile, Councillor Charles Buchan highlighted the issue of parking on double-yellow lines, something which had been brought up at a recent meeting of Southpark School Parents Council.
