Councillors in Chapel-en-le-Frith have applauded a sharp increase in police detection rates.

The parish council meeting was told the figure had risen from 14.3 per cent last year to 50 per cent.

Cllr Mike Smith said: “We are very fortunate to live in an area where the crime rate is low, maybe that is to do with preventative measures, but the figures for detection haven’t been good in the past, 50 per cent is a massive increase and is to be applauded.”
