An agreement has been reached that we now have a new way of bringing you news related to crime incidents. Instead of the listings we showed
over past few months you can now actively search from this website your post code and get actual everyday updated figures. For us at Business
Watch Totton this is a very good development and we thank our colleagues at Hampshire Constabulary for their kind consent and invaluable input.
Please go here for all the latest incidents and enter your postcode website:


...Welcome to Blue Light News. These pages will update you on crimes and incidents that have occurred and ultimately help you to be aware of
what is happening locally. After much deliberation we felt open source reading made greater sense to our membership and to those members of the
public who very frequently drop by our website.The forum was open to spammers and as responsible webmaster I felt in all our interests this route
was by far more favourable.

Police appeal to thief to return photos from handbag snatch

(Published: Wednesday, November 27, 2013 ) Its Christmas time do the right thing if you can help contact New Milton Police with any information.
The photos were in the handbag of a 44-year-old New Milton woman who was the victim of theft on Friday morning, November 15. Between 8-
8.30am, the woman was walking to the car park between Ashley Road and Elm Avenue, New Milton, having posted a letter at the town’s post
office. She walked along Ashley Road, towards Old Milton Road. Just after Pettengells Estate Agents, she turned left into an alleyway to the car
park.
The woman felt her handbag being tugged away, and saw a man on a bicycle pulling at the straps. This man is described as slim and in his
twenties. He wore a scruffy green puffa jacket, blue jeans, trainers and a grey or brown woolly hat.The handbag is black leather with two thin
shoulder straps. It contained a blue and white tartan purse with a gold clasp. The purse contained £300 cash. Also in the bag were codeine tablets
and four photographs of the woman’s children - two of a boy and two of girls. One of the photographs is of the woman’s deceased daughter, and it
is one of the only remaining photographs of the child. Of all the items in the stolen handbag, this photograph is the only thing she wants
returned.Police are appealing for information from anyone who saw the incident or who saw a cyclist of the thief’s description riding in or away from
Ashley Road car park. They also would like to hear from anyone who finds the discarded handbag.
PC Kieron Maddock is investigating the theft. He said: “I appeal to the person responsible for the theft to return the photograph to New Milton police
station. It is the least he can do.”
