A free safety session gave women advice on looking out for themselves while out and about.

The event took place at the Pen Green Centre in Corby on Friday, with Insp Julie Mead and Sgt Wendy Barron from the Corby Safer Community Team offering panic alarms and crime prevention items to everyone who attended.

They also offered advice on preventing domestic abuse and hate crime.

Insp Mead said: “We had a really good turnout which we were really pleased with. It was just to raise safety issues which as working mums we sometimes forget about. Your own safety is often the last thing on your mind.

“It is about reminding people not to get into those worst-case scenarios. We are all human and as a working mum I know you can have a million and one other things on your mind.

“Knowing how to look after yourself when out on your own is something every woman should be aware of.

“Sessions such as these offer reassurance on how to stay safe if faced with a difficult situation.”
