Last week Police and Crime Commissioner Michael Lane published ain Hampshire, which provides an important insight into road safety statistics across the area as well as the steps being taken by partners to improve safety for all road users.
Partners who contributed to the report include Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, South Central Ambulance Service, Speedwatch, and local authorities.

In this unusually dry summer there is an increased risk of fire breaking out in the countryside. Until normal damp conditions return we ask all parishioners to be particularly careful not to add to the risk and refrain from burning garden rubbish for the time being. Sparks from garden fires can travel a distance and ignite other gardens or fields.
Further, fires in open areas of land can easily spread and become out of control. Something as simple as not stubbing a cigarette out properly, or using a disposable barbecue on grass, can start a fire that can develop quickly.
