TWO bicycles have been bought to aid the fight against crime in Welwyn Hatfield.
They have been purchased by the Welwyn Hatfield Community Safety Partnership (CSP), a collaboration between a number of organisations including police, the borough council and fire service.
The bikes, part of a fleet of 24, will be used by Pcs, Pcsos, special constables and council street wardens, to help make the CSP more visible in the borough.
