This morning, the Staveley and Newbold Safer Neighbourhood Team reported that they had attended a vulnerable person’s flat at Leyton Court, Handley Road, New Whittington. They went to carry out a safe and well check on the occupant, and to establish if the flat was part of a County Line.
Officers located a 39-year-old male and a 33-year-old female who should not have been at the property, and they were asked to leave so the flat could be returned to the local council. The vulnerable male was also located elsewhere and he is safe and well.
