Chesterfield Safer Neighbourhood Team have been busy in the town centre today despite the rain.

A spokesman said: “A prolific beggar, previously arrested for begging on August 18 and 23, was arrested in breach of his court bail condition not to enter the town centre. He was remanded to court on Monday.”

In another incident, officers chased and detained a female shop lifter who stole from a town centre shop.
