Lifesize cardboard cut-outs of police officers have been produced to help in the fight against shoplifting in Hucknall.

The Hucknall West Safer Neighbourhood Committee funded the cardboard coppers in a bid to make potential thieves think again when entering the shops in the town.

The two figures will be standing guard at the Co-op on Watnall Road and the Tesco Express store on Annesley Road.
