A Preston Here for Humanity representative said: “Three elected councillors for Plungington are prepared to listen to complaints about all the recent crime – flytipping, amongst other things.
“Plungington is being portrayed in the local press and on social media as the worst area in the city at the moment, and with so many new HMOs, car break-ins and burglaries, it’s understandable why.
“The surgery is a huge step, and hopefully, together, we can make the area better.”
