CRIME FIGURES STILL HIGHBurglaries continue to be a major problem and during the last two months there have been incidents in more than a dozen locations in Rainhill Village, including St James Road, Holt Lane, Galston Avenue, Dee Road and Warrington Road. Cars were stolen from locations including Warburton Hey, Second Avenue, Warrington Road, Rainhill Road, St Annes Place, View Road and Stapleton Road.
Although there were 20% less burglaries last year in St Helens than in 2005, we continue to be targeted more than some other areas of the town.
