I am looking forward to working with the beat team and getting to know the people of Mountsorrel. We will be actively tackling anti-social behaviour and criminality of all descriptions, at all levels, within the village. I will be out and about Mountsorrel and would encourage villagers to stop and say hello and discuss any issues or concerns that they may have.
