Criminal activity at train stations in the area falls by a third

Criminal activity at railway stations in the area has fallen by a third in a year. 

According to statistics from the British Transport Police, Maidenhead Station experienced 63 crimes for 2012-13 compared to 95 from 2011-2012.

The most frequently committed crime was cycle theft, followed by public order offences, vehicle crimes and anti-social behaviour.

Two offences were committed at Furze Platt station, one robbery and one violent crime.

Five crimes were recorded to have happened at Bourne End Station and the same number happened at Marlow.

Taplow saw three crimes, 10 less than the previous year with the majority of these being cycle thefts.

There have been no recorded incidents of criminal activity in Cookham Station for the past two years.

The Marlow and Maidenhead Passenger Association, who say the reports show 'relative safety' at Maidenhead and surrounding stations is working with local authorities with the aim to help eliminate the crime completely.
