Bobbies on buggies in Skegness

Police will be patrolling the seafront on in buggies.

If you were out enjoying the sun on Skegness beach this morning you may have seen officers from Lincolnshire Police training to use UTVs (Unusual Terrain Vehicles).

The buggies are ordinarilly utilised by the Lincolnshire Rural Crime Unit to catch hare coursers, but as the summer season approaches they will be redeployed to the beach.

The vehicles will allow officers to have greater flexibility tackling anti social behaviour and crime along the coast.
