Students at a college in Street have spearheaded a radio campaign aimed at curbing crime rates in local communities.

The Strode College media students collaborated with Radio Ninesprings and the High Sheriff of Somerset’s Crimebeat Fund to create a series of radio jingles about pressing issues such as cybercrime, stalking, and speeding traffic.

Somerset’s High Sheriff, Robert Drewett, said: "I am grateful to the media students at Strode College for all their hard work on this project.

"The radio jingles they produced are to a very high standard and contain important messages that will help to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour."

He added: "It is important that as many people as possible hear these messages and act upon them."

The jingles can be heard on Radio Ninesprings on 104.5 FM for Yeovil and South Somerset, 103.3 FM for Wincanton, and 107.6 FM for Chard.
