onlineFOCUS has been informed that Hockley’s Co-op has been subjected to a Ram-Raid. It’s reported that the bollards were driven over but they are only plastic with an iron rod in centre so no good to stop large cars mounting the path.
The shop is currently being repaired now but still roped off as a crime scene.
Our Liberal Democrat campaigner Nicola O’Riordan Finley, remarked
It is tragic that this sort of thing happens in a small friendly place like Hockley. Unfortunately these days we all need to be on our guard with local policing cut to the bone and even small communities suffering events like this and constantly under the threat of the so called ‘County line’ spread of crime from the big towns and cities
