Police have received reports of a group of individuals approaching members of the public in the Devizes area using forceful and intimidating behaviour to try and pressure them into buying generators.

Pressurising behaviour includes placing a generator into a member of the public’s boot while they are loading their shopping. Please look out for vulnerable or elderly people in our community if you believe they are being approach or intimidated by this group.

The individuals have been spotted in Devizes at locations including Morrisons supermarket carpark and London Road petrol station but they are believed to have headed out of town towards Amesbury.

The group are believed to speak in Irish accents and be in several vans.

If you are approached by this group, do not purchase anything from them as we do not know the origin of the generators, politely decline and inform them you will be contacting police on 101. Trading standards have also been informed.

Armed Police in Wiltshire

In response to the recent change in the threat level to critical, armed officers from Wiltshire Police will be seen out and about in our communities, primarily in Swindon and Salisbury but not limited to those areas.

We do stress that this is not based on any change in intelligence or threat for those areas, the county or the South West, but the decision has been taken instead to make firearms officers more deployable and visible to our communities. We think this is what the public would expect at this time.

Our priority is to provide as much reassurance to communities as possible but we do recognise that some may feel anxious. The firearms officers will be engaging and talking with people and we would actively encourage you to approach the officers and ask any questions they may have.

We advise the public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour or activity on 0800 789 321 or in an emergency the public should always call 999.  Continue reading Armed Police in Wiltshire

Katrina Fleet (Police, Communications Officer, Wiltshire)


Statement from Assistant Chief Constable Kier Pritchard:

“The thoughts of everyone at Wiltshire Police remain with those affected following the horrific events in Manchester on Monday evening.

“Yesterday the decision was taken by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) to raise the national threat level to “critical”. This means that an attack remains highly likely but also that a further attack may be imminent.

“As part of the response to this raise to critical Military personnel will be deployed to backfill police officers at key locations across the country.

“There is no known specific threat to Wiltshire and the South West region at this time and it is unlikely that our communities will see a military presence on the streets.

“The most important message is for the public to remain alert but not alarmed – police nationally and locally along with our partners, are doing everything we can to help protect the security of our citizens, public institutions, critical national infrastructure, and businesses and places.

“Communities defeat terrorism, which is why we must maintain the strong relationship between the public and police. We depend on information from the public, who can be our eyes and ears, in our efforts to keep us all safe.

“Our security measures and activities are under constant review and we will keep communities updated.

“We advise the public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour or activity on 0800 789 321 or in an emergency the public should always call 999. ”

The latest guidance on recognising the terrorist threat and remaining vigilant can be accessed via www.nactso.gov.uk

RSPB opens hotline to locate the UK’s rarest breeding birds of prey

The RSPB is encouraging farmers, birdwatchers and walkers to keep a look out for Montagu’s harriers, the UK’s rarest breeding bird of prey, as they begin this year’s breeding season.

In 2016, five pairs of Montagu’s harrier are known to have nested in England (in Norfolk and SW England). It is essential that the small number of breeding attempts made this year are identified and protected from accidental damage, disturbance or persecution to give these magnificent birds the best possible chance.
