WALLEND AND DENGEMARSH: Police report for September 2021. There were two reports of nuisance youths and four reports of poaching. However, this area accounts for the bulk of reports of migrants landing, mainly at Dungeness, but also Lydd-on-Sea area, Dengemarsh beach and Galloways beach. As you will know from all the press reports, this year has been very busy on the coast with migrants coming in by dinghy. I would expect that as windier winter months come the incidents will slow, however calm sea days are likely to see an influx of boats taking advantage of weather breaks.
Lydd Town has had a good year, with very few reported incidents of ASB, of course there has been some, but lower than other years. Again, except for the two tragic road traffic accidents that attracted a lot of press earlier in the year, accidents have been quite low compared to previous years.
This is only a brief overview of the areas, it does not really reflect the full range of calls that Police attend. But it will give you some idea of what has been going on. We are always available to reply to e mails or if contact is made via 101. If you really do need a further breakdown oif crime on the areas, this can be found on the Kent Police Website. As always, I will end by saying that Kent is a safe place to live and work and with everybody's help, we can keep it that way.
Keep safe and keep well.
