Suspicious Circumstances in Studley -  Minicab safety -  Minicab operators are now licensed and cannot stop in public places to offer their services. They can only legally carry passengers who have booked them in advance. Illegal and unlicensed minicabs can be dangerous - passengers don't know who they are getting in with or what the driver's motives are. We advise that if a car and person fitting the description described in the incidents in Studley are seen, that its reported to police straight away on 101 - giving details of its registration number etc.

Top tips

*carry the telephone number of a known and trusted minicab company

*always pre-book a car through a licensed minicab office

*when booking, ask for the car and driver details and ensure the driver knows what name it was booked under

*ensure that the car ordered is the one that arrives

*sit in the rear of the vehicle and carry a mobile phone and a personal safety alarm

*if you feel threatened, ask the driver to stop in a busy area and get out

*personal safety alarms are designed to shock and disorientate an attacker, giving vital seconds to get away - they are compact and very loud, so that they can be carried discreetly in a pocket or palm of your hand.

Theft of Wheelie Bins - We still have reports of wheelie bins being stolen from around the area. Bins can be marked with your postcode and house number, and this will help in its return if found by neighbours or police etc. As long as the colour and refuse type of the bin is obvious to the collectors then markings will help and deter thefts.
