The RBOA rep for the eastern K&A, Jane Pollard, has had discussions with PC Teresa Herbert of Wiltshire Police. Jane says “PC Herbert is very keen to establish an efficient means of communication along her patch of the canal – mainly Bedwyn to Devizes – but there is an officer coordinating all issues along the length of the canal too. She suggested possible local meetings and realises that there is not sufficient policing of the canal. She wants to improve this.”
Two Oxfordshire Narrowboats hire boats were broken into at Avoncliff in the early evening after dark yesterday and valuables including laptops were stolen. The spate of boat burglaries has continued but boaters have reported more information to the police about suspicious activity along the canal.
