Corby MP Andy Sawford has stepped up his campaign to safeguard the future of the town’s police station by raising his concerns in Parliament.

He has also launched a survey on the issue, asking residents for their views.

Mr Sawford has already written to police and crime commissioner Adam Simmonds to raise his concerns about the future of the police station.

During a speech in the House of Commons, Mr Sawford revealed that if Corby’s police station closes, it would become the largest town in England without one.

Mr Sawford said: “One of the biggest concerns that I have is about the future of Corby Police Station.

“The police and crime commissioner has said that it is outdated and that he plans to close it.”

Mr Simmonds said: “We are currently reviewing the whole of the Northamptonshire Police estate to ensure we have a modern, 21st century policing estate that best meets the current and future needs of policing in Northamptonshire.”
