A CAMPAIGN to reopen a police station in a town where two people were murdered will be discussed at a council meeting next week.

People living in Dinnington launched the campaign after the murder of 16-year-old Leonne Weeks in January and the killing of Steven Fretwell in Laughton Common in December.

Resident Tim Wells, who set up the petition, will discuss the campaign at Dinnington St John’s Council’s annual parish meeting, on Monday.

The meeting will be held at the Lyric Theatre, Laughton Road, from 7pm on Monday.

The petition has now been signed by more than 2,000 people despite Chief Supt Rob Odell saying the force was not planning to re-open the station.
