Police hold Bulldog Bash surgeries for nearby residents

Residents in south Warwickshire will be able to find out more about next week's Bulldog Bash at two police surgeries.

The four-day annual biker event in Long Marston begins on Thursday, 9 August.

A mobile police station will be outside Lower Quinton Post Office from 18:00 BST on Wednesday. An hour later it will move on to Long Marston Post Office.

A police spokesman said it would give local people "an opportunity to raise any questions or concerns" about the festival.

Dep Ch Cons for Warwickshire Police, Neil Brunton, said: "The vast majority of people attending Bulldog Bash are decent law-abiding motorcyclists or music fans and we hope that everyone has a most enjoyable and safe experience.

"Warwickshire Police is keen to engage with those attending the event, as well as residents and people passing through the area and we will do everything we can to protect people from harm and loss.

"This year's policing operation is designed to be proportionate to the overall threat assessment and will remain flexible to deter criminal activity and our enforcement activity will be intelligence led to target those intent on causing harm."
