Back our Bobbies:VIDEO Operation Riverside Det Inspector tackles robbery in the borough.

Detective Inspector Luke Hampton of the East Area Burglary and Robbery Investigation is tackling robbery in the borough as part of Operation Riverside.

Operation Riverside was launched last week with the aim to prevent children being robbed on their way home.

Police are concerned that there might be a spike in robberies as children return to school and to combat this have launched this operation to tackle any issues that may arise as quickly as possible.

The East Area Burglary and Robbery Investigation team will be playing a big part in Operation Riverside supporting youngsters in the borough.
