Police community support officers have won the backing of Sutton Bridge Parish Council as they plan to patrol the village on bikes.

Three PCSOs who cover the area currently have a car, but they would like new bikes costing £400 and a special, car-mounted bike carrier for a little under £1,000.

PCSO Toni Musico-Cardillo said bikes will enable officers “to get in and around a lot more places”, including farm tracks.

She said: “We have also found children engage with us when we are on the bikes because they have bikes.”

The parish council agreed to write to Lincolnshire’s Chief Constable and the Police and Crime Commissioner to see if they can source funding for the plan.
