SUSPICIOUS behaviour in Oxenhope was reported to police during a meeting of the village’s parish council.

Worth Valley councillor Chris Herd mentioned the suspect activity to a Police Community Support Officer who was also attending the meeting.

Cllr Herd explained he had seen the occupants of a black coloured Golf “snooping around” other people’s cars at the top of Shaw Lane at 9.20pm on December 10.

He obtained a photo of the Golf which he said has been sent to police, adding he also notified Fields of Vision Rural Intelligence scheme, which helps combats rural crime.

At the same meeting, acting council chairman Cllr Robert Goulding said he had seen evidence of recent “legal high” consumption in Old Oxenhope Lane. He said the same location is often strewn with beer bottles and cans.
