Police officers in a town are hoping to get on like a house on fire with their new roommates in a fire station.

Police in Tenbury Wells move into town's fire service building

The local policing team in Tenbury Wells have moved from Berrington Road to the town's fire station.

It follows a review of all police buildings by West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion as he seeks to save the force money through co-location.

The PCC is responsible for all West Mercia police buildings, and ensuring they are effective and efficient whilst delivering value for money on behalf of local communities.

Mr Campion said: “I have heard loud and clear from communities that they want their police force to be visible and accessible, which is why I felt it was important to maintain the presence within Tenbury Wells."

He said the move to the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service station will allow members of the public to still access their local policing team and maintain the presence within the town.
