POLICE in Urmston have sought to reassure the community following the murder of Rhyan Wilson.

A statement on North Trafford Police's Facebook page read: "Many of you have raised concerns regarding police presence, particularly in Urmston, following the tragic incident last weekend.

"Your local inspector wants to reassure Trafford residents with this message:

"The police do not have an infinite number of officers and policing in the current climate of budget cuts is particularly challenging, we have to prioritise where we patrol based on the known, current problems.

"In relation to 999 calls, we have tight time scales that we have to get to these incidents, and we constantly meet these – we keep people safe.

"Each residential area has a dedicated neighbourhood beat officer and PCSO who look to deal with long term problems, you may not always see them but they are there out and about.

"Please take comfort that, despite the tragic incident in Urmston over the last weekend, Trafford remains the safest borough in Manchester in which to live, work and visit."

I agree with police and its a fact since this barm pot coalition has come into power we now have fewer police and a rise in crime so they are stretched to the limit, However giving false hope to people is unrealistic if you look at the crime map you will see a rise in crime nothing huge but a rise none the less, The sad death of the 18 year old was isolated and people should not get to alarmed by the events that took place and should go about there day in the normal way, The police and other agencys are working to protect Trafford although the reality is we have crime going up we all can see and know this we are still the safest borough and we should all be proud of this fact, RIP to rhyan and I send my condolences to is family and friends
