Matthew Hancock, MP for West Suffolk, has said he is ‘delighted’ by a 16 per cent reduction in crime in Mildenhall since last year.

The number of recorded crimes has decreased from 128 in January 2012 to 107 in January 2014.

Mr Hancock said: “I am delighted that we are seeing crime fall here in Mildenhall and across the country. This is down to the hard work and dedication of our police force, who do a fantastic job.

“We also have the community to thank who, after a tough few years, are beginning to find their feet, move back to work and find better security for their families.”

Anti social behaviour related crimes have nearly halved since August 2013 and violent crime is down by 35 per cent.

Drug crime has seen a steep decline since May 2013, decreasing by 66 per cent.

Mr Hancock said: “There is still a lot more to do. I’ll be working with our Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore, on local priorities so we keep seeing results on the ground and make Mildenhall a safer place to live.”
