Crime on decrease in the Runtons
Figures have revealed that crime levels in the Runtons in north Norfolk are going down.
Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Huw Kerfoot recently presented the figures at the Runtons annual parish meeting which showed overall crimes fell from 58 to 31 over the last 12 months comparing the same period in 2009-2010 to 2010-2011.
