    Traffic operation

    On Saturday 27th October, Bournville and Oldmixon One Team carried out a traffic operation in the area of Winterstoke road.

    Vehicles were checked for valid insurance/MOT, and all number plates were put through the national Police Computer system to ascertain if there were any reports placed on the vehicle such as theft reports or wanted markers.

    The operation was a great success and offenders were dealt with robustly. The team will look at repeating the exercise regularly to help tackle crime one car at a time!
