Ledbury police station could close
8:40am Friday 21st September 2012 in News
Ledbury police station could close under a property review being carried out between West Mercia Police and Warwickshire Police.
The two forces are forming an alliance and rumours are growing in Ledbury that the decision has already been taken to shut the Herefordshire station.
Former deputy town mayor Councillor Tony Bradford said he had it “on good authority”that the police station would shut.
West Mercia Police has declined to rule out a closure.
Toby Shergold, police press officer, said: “As far as police buildings are concerned, everything is being looked at.
“We have gone into an alliance with Warwickshire Police, which will mean sharing a lot of services and facilities.”
Concerning the possible closure of Ledbury station, he said: “We are not ruling it in; we are not ruling it out."
