In addition to our incident database, which is updated on a regular basis by our media team, we have a press hotline - 01376 570814. If you are not the press, use 01376 576000 for other enquiries.
We ask that routine press check calls are not made between 9pm and 8am, because all items of interest will be posted here as they happen. Please note this is NOT a service for the public and press from outside our local area are asked politely to adhere to these guidelines.
