THE police base in Mellor Brook will close in April despite attempts to keep it open.

Police chiefs met with representatives including Lancashire county councillor Alan Schofield and Mellor Parish Council chairman Pat Young to discuss the changes.

Under the plans the base will close and the community beat manager will report to Clitheroe Police Station before starting a shift across Mellor Brook and Wilpshire.

The base is currently in Mellor Brook Community Centre and police have said the level of service will not decrease as a result of the it’s closure.

Coun Schofield said: “Inspector Hassan Khan gave us assurances that the service will not decrease because of the closure of the base and said that it might also increase. It’s a shame that it will now close but hopefully the impact will not be a negative one.”
