Three new Police Community Support Officers have started work in Burnham-On-Sea this week as part of an ongoing crackdown on local crime.

A total of 11 PCSOs are now patrolling the Burnham and Cheddar police sector, with five newcomers having joined during the past four months.

The latest additions, pictured, are Sarah Jane England (covering Burnham town centre), Elliott Green (Brean) and Sam Haydon (Highbridge).

A Burnham police spokesman said the latest recruits mean there has been a 50 per cent increase in uniformed staff at the town station during the last three years.
