Labour vigilant in Milton
After a number of incidents in Milton ward over the last year, local Labour campaigners are re-assuring Milton’s residents, and those who work in and visit the ward, that they are working with Police to ensure that these isolated events remain isolated.
Gray Sergeant, Labour’s candidate for Milton at the 2015 elections, said, “I am looking forward to speaking with residents, and to listening and responding to their concerns around crime. Together we can build a safer community.”
Cheryl Nevin, Labour councillor for Milton, added, “Councillors have been in dialogue with local police discussing measures to improve visibility around Park Lane following discussions at the Local Community Meetings.”
Julian Ware-Lane, Labour councillor for Milton, said “Recent incidents are not representative of Milton. This is generally a safe ward and very pleasant part of Southend-on-Sea. However, Government cuts to policing make re-assuring the public more difficult. I am committed to ensuring that residents’ concerns are listened to and addressed.”
