Most reported crime in Keighley between late December and early last month showed a decline compared to the same period for 2012/13, according to a police update.

Acting Sergeant Adam Beecroft delivered the information to members of Keighley Town Council’s watch & transport committee.

He noted theft from shops was slightly up, but that this issue is being addressed.

Acting Sgt Beecroft added orders had been issued to all known suspects banning them from the town centre, and this measure has resulted in a 35 per cent reduction in offending.
