New Somerset group set up to tackle crime

A new partnership has been set up to tackle crime in parts of West Somerset.

The Bridgwater and Burnham Security Group has joined forces with Taunton Retailers Against Crime.

Somerset West Businesses Against Crime said it will continue to offer local businesses a direct link to police and other retailers.

Andy Sharman, from the group, said the service was a "massive reassurance" for lone workers.

"A push of a button and they're talking to the rest of the local community who can hopefully come and support them should they need that support," he said.
