Police sergeant Ronnie Lungu has expressed his appreciation to everyone in Devizes for making him so welcome while he was standing in for his injured colleague Sgt Jo Spencer.

Sgt Spencer returned to work last week following five months’ sick leave after being seriously injured in a street accident. Sgt Lungu has been posted to work with the Wiltshire Criminal Justice Board.

He said: “I would like to thank all the Devizes community for their support in my time here.”
