The Conservative candidate for Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner has visited Spilsby to hear about local policing issues and concerns.
Marc Jones was joined by Louth and Horncastle MP, Victoria Atkins, with the pair visiting dozens of roads in the town to talk to residents and deliver literature.
A key concern brought to Marc’s attention was rural crime with hare coursing and the need to have rural and urban crime-fighting resources shared fairly.

Marc was selected as Conservative candidate for the police and crime election in October and has since launched a six-point plan improve policing. Marc said:
“I enjoyed visiting Spilsby with Victoria and talking with residents about how we can make the town safer for the whole community.
“The six-point police plan I have introduced provides action on many of the issues raised for example introducing new community constables to beat rural crime.
Victoria Atkins added:
“The Police and Crime Commissioner is an important role, overseeing a budget of millions and holding the police to account on behalf of the public.
“I am convinced Marc will make a good Police Commissioner who can work with Government, spend wisely and produce fresh ideas to beat crime on behalf of the people of Spilsby.”
