Lincolnshire Police says number of incidents was 'broadly in line' with what police usually deal with at weekends as pubs reopened
Lincolnshire Police says the number of incidents it deal with last night (Saturday, July 4) was 'broadly in line' with what it would expect on a weekend as pubs reopened.
Chief Superintendent Chris Davison said: “Firstly, I would like to thank the officers working over the weekend for their professionalism and dedication. Over the last months they have worked tirelessly through uncertain and testing times and the opening of pubs was just the latest in a great line of challenges that they have faced. I would also like to thank our specials, partners, street pastors and venue staff.
“As this was an evening with a unique set of circumstances, we don’t have a comparison we can draw statistically, but the number of incidents we were dealing with was broadly in line with what we deal with on a normal weekend night, if anything it was quieter than usual with less people out and not all venues open.
