      Pleased to say the event was a great success, with lots of money raised for charity.LBP edged out NYPD 4 bouts to 3 after a thrilling last fight. Mike Leask was delighted with result from his scratch team as this is believed to be the first defeat for the New York lads.

      Stevie Livingstone had the experience of a lifetime when he when up against ‘Terrible Tim’ and gained a draw and the respect of the former World Champion. To quote Stevie “I had the time of my life tonight. It was an amazing experience to box with Tim Witherspoon and I enjoyed every minute of it.”

    Community Policing 

    We would welcome your views and comments on policing in your local neighbourhood. What are your priorities? What you would like to see the Police doing in your area?

      I would like to see more community police on the streets. Physical presence on the pavements is reassuring to residents and a deterrent to potential law breakers.
