A MOBILE police station was parked up in a Sheffield suburb to give bobbies the chance to speak to residents about issues of concern.

The station was set up in the centre of Woodhouse to make it easier for residents to raise issues they want addressed.

Officers said anti-social behaviour and litter problems were among those discussed. Staff who manned the station also took time to patrol Woodhouse to talk to residents on the streets.

They also gave crime prevention advice and handed out leaflets. The Safer Neighbourhood Team for Woodhouse has also planned a series of drop-in sessions to be held at Woodhouse Housing Office, Chapel Street.

The next one is to be held on June 22 from 10am until noon.

Anyone unable to attend but with issues of concern to raise should call 0114 2963779.
