A policing meeting has been hailed a huge success by Blackburn resident Charlotte Kovacs, who encouraged her neighbours to attend.

The meeting was held in the Golden Cup pub in Fernhurst on Wednesday and was attended by councillors, residents and community police officers.

A number of issues were raised such as match day parking and vandalism.

Charlotte said: “I would like to thank the number of residents from the Sandy Lane area for attending the meeting. It surprised me that some people did not know who to turn to when they had problems.”

Charlotte said anyone in the area with concerns can call her on 07960 593908.
