Ever since the shutting down Westhoughton’s Police Station on Wigan Road, the face of policing in our town has continued to shrink.
Westhoughton Councillor David Wilkinson said: “A back room office in the town hall is not exactly a very public face for the police. Most people will not even realise that it is there and many will be put off from going to it.
“Many people will remember the old police station. Unfortunately since it was shut down things have got worse, not better.”
