North Herefordshire MP Bill Wiggin has welcomed the news that recorded crime in West Mercia has fallen over the last twelve months. Latest figures from the independent Office for National Statistics show that recorded crime in West Mercia fell by 11per cent.

Bill Wiggin MP said: “The news that crime is falling in West Mercia will be warmly welcomed by local people. Our hardworking police officers in West Mercia can be proud of their success.

“Because Conservatives are on the side of people who work hard and do the right thing, we are reforming the police so they can cut crime and make our communities safer. These figures show the people who said our reforms wouldn’t work are wrong.”
