    Young people take to the airwaves at Radio Ninesprings to tackle crime...

    Media students at Strode College in Street have recorded a series of radio adverts to help cut crime and make people feel safer where they live. The recordings, made by Radio Ninesprings in partnership with the High Sheriff of Somerset’s Crimebeat Fund, are aimed at raising awareness of issues like cybercrime, stalking, and speeding traffic, and give the students a say in how these issues are tackled.

    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. It is important that as many people as possible hear these messages and act upon them”.

    The jingles can be heard throughout the day on Radio Ninesprings.
