A crime prevention roadshow will take place at a Leeds hospital, just weeks after a spate of thefts from a children’s cancer ward in the city.

West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Mark Burns-Williamson will underline the partnership between Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and West Yorkshire Police at the crime prevention event at Leeds St James’s Hospital on Thursday.

The free event, which will run in the Bexley Wing atrium from 10am to 2pm, comes weeks after items including a mobile phone and laptops were stolen from Leeds General Infirmary.

A series of stalls as well as police and fire vehicles will showcase the work of the emergency services. They will also highlight safety advice and the zero tolerance approach to crime and anti-social behaviour on Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust sites.

The event will also feature fire safety advice from West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.
