New police station in city centre
A new police station is to open in the centre of Bristol.

Newfoundland Road Police Station, close to junction one of the M32, will open its doors on Friday December 15.

The station will provide a base for the Ashley Neighbourhood Policing Team which will be in walking distance of its beat, a spokesman said.

A community safety team, including crime reduction officers and an anti- social behaviour unit, will also move into the new base.

A front office has been installed in the building and will be open from 0800 GMT until 1600 from Mondays to Fridays.

Chief Superintendent Kay Wozniak said: "This new station will bring a significant police presence, providing reassurance to the people living and working nearby."
