MP Sir Jim Paice has welcomed news that crime in Cambridgeshire has fallen again over the last year.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that, since 2010, recorded crime in Cambridgeshire has fallen by 25 per cent.

The trend of falling crime is supported by the independent Crime Survey of England and Wales and a fall in violent crime shown by fewer people going to hospital with injuries from violent incidents.

Sir Jim said: “It is great news that crime has again fallen in Cambridgeshire. Local police officers should be proud of their success in cutting crime.

“The Government has cut red tape so that the police can focus on crime reduction. And that is what they are doing. People are now safer on the streets, at home, and at work – all of which helps build stronger communities across the county.”
