Lib Dems launch survey on crime

LIBERAL Democrats in Dunston and Bensham, Gateshead, have launched a survey of residents on crime, anti-social behaviour and vandalism.

The survey was launched after residents contacted Lib Dem councillors concerned about law-breaking in the area.

The survey is being co-ordinated by Councillor Yvonne McNicol, who represents Dunston Hill, and Susan Craig, who leads the Lib Dem Focus team in Bensham.

5000 survey forms have been delivered along with copies of the party’s recent edition of their Focus community newsletter.

“We are carrying out the survey so that residents can raised their concerns directly with us,” said Councillor McNicol.

Susan Craig said, “We have already had many replies and we are sorting through them. We will be taking up all the issues raised.”
