  • On 28.01.13 a small disturbance was reported at The Golden Lion public house. A local man has received a warning regarding his drunken behaviour. The Golden Lion remains closed as it no longer has a licence to sell alcohol.


  • Officers are continuing to target speeding motorists through the village. As a result we are getting less frequent reports of anti social driving through Mouldsworth.


  • Officers have investigated a report of an affray that occurred over the festive period on Hockenhull Avenue. Despite protracted enquiries by Police the crown prosecution service have decided the suspect will not be charged.
  • On 29.01.13 we took a report of a suspicious man in Tarvin trying door handles of houses on High street, the information came from a passing motorist. Uniformed offers and plain clothed officers were swiftly deployed to the area to search for him. A number of local people on the high street matching the description were stopped and spoken to but after a brief chat with police it was confirmed they were unconnected to this matter but happy to assist police. Officers remained in the area for some time and a Polish man delivering charity collection bags was stopped and identified as the man reported. No offences were disclosed however we welcome reports of such activity.
  • During January officers took reports of a suspicious man walking around the village in the early hours. A couple of female residents expressed concerns regarding the man. Police have identified him, spoken to him and we are satisfied there is a perfectly innocent explanation to the males activities.


  • On 07.02.2013 a burglary occurred on The Wynd. 2 offenders were seen by a witness to enter the insecure front porch and had looked through drawers. It is believed they were looking for keys to a car parked on the driveway. The men were described as both white, 5’6” to 5’7” tall of slight build. 1 had light brown mousey hair and wore a dark bubble jacket and bright green trainers. The other had dark brown hair and wore black jeans / trousers and black shoes. If you saw anyone similar or know who they are we would like to hear from you. Please dial 101.
