PCSO Louise Fyne has said goodbye to Wellington police station as she retires from her policing career.

The local officer was bid a 'fond farewell' by fellow police staff at an event held last week.

Ms Fyne was thanked for her 15 years of service, and given 'the send-off she deserves.'

Well known locally for her beats around Wiveliscombe and Milverton, Ms Fyne was praised for her passion for youth engagement, including engaging with schoolchildren.

A spokesperson from the Wellington Neighbourhood Policing team said: "Lou should be rightly proud of her achievements and we wish her all the best of luck in her next venture!"
