5:05pm Friday 12th October 2012 in News
A BLACKBURN community leader has warned burglars that CCTV in his ward is now working.
Due to technical problems the camera, in a prime location at the junction of Whalley Range, Victoria Street and Randall Street was off for several weeks.
Jewellery and designer clothing stores have been targeted in a number of break-ins.
Hussain Akhtar, chairman of Whalley Range traders committee, said: “We just want robbers and criminals to know that they are being watched. People can now feel safe again knowing that the CCTV is back on.”
