And Finally – Police Appeal for the Public to Keep Away from the RAF Upwood Site:
Despite demolition now well under way at the disused RAF Upwood site, police are continuing to receive reports of people breaking in, committing acts of criminal damage and anti-social behaviour and also putting themselves in serious danger.

Police are urging people to speak to their children, friends and family and explain that entering onto the old base is trespassing and also potentially very dangerous.
