A Kettering shopping centre’s commitment to reducing crime has been recognised with a special award.

The Newlands Shopping Centre has been granted the Park Mark Safer Parking Award, an initiative created by the Association of Chief Police Officers aimed at reducing crime and the fear of crime.

Neil Griffin, the centre manager, said: “We are delighted that the Newlands car park has reached the standards required by the scheme. Christmas is the perfect excuse to go shopping.

“Our shoppers can feel rest assured that we are providing safe car parking facilities.”
