Stations will close

WARSOP police station is to be sold off after the plan reported in last week’s Chad was approved by Nottinghamshire Police Authority.

The force also got the go-ahead on Wednesday to shut smaller offices at Cross Street in Bilsthorpe, plus Barrowhill Walk, Hickling Court, Shireoaks Court and William Kaye Hall, all in Mansfield.

Police chiefs say all the sites are under-used and disposing of them will save thousands of pounds.

Officers are instead expected to move into local council buildings, town halls and community centres in a move bosses say will make officers more visible and accessible.
