As one of those lucky enough to try out the new Crime Map UK before it crashed, I can tell you that the area around Longridge recorded 39 crimes in December 2010. Two were burglaries, while the remaining 37 involved anti social behaviour. They were spread across a wide area, not just the usual hotspots. Does that tell us anything? I'll let you draw your own conclusions . . .
Evidently, 75,000 of us have been trying to access the new website every minute. After four million people tried without success to log on, the site crashed. The Home Office advises people to keep trying! When it is up and running again, log on to www.police.uk. Enjoy!
