Police are looking to tackle shoplifting in and around Malvern.

Pickersleigh and Chase Safer Neighbourhood Team and the Priory and Wells team have been installing new signs to warn of shoplifters.

"Thieves Beware" signs have been put in place around Barnards Green and Great Malvern Town Centre in a bid to underline to those who may be thinking of stealing in the area, that West Mercia Police will continue to work with retailers to identify and prosecute those who steal.

"Malvern remains a safe area to live with a low crime rate and we as the local police teams are working hard to help keep it that way," said PCSO Kevin Tudge.

"We will continue to show a visible police presence in Barnards Green and Great Malvern Town Centre, engaging with retailers and members of the public, which help us deal with reported incidents accordingly."
