A LONG-serving special constable had been presented with an award.

Inspector Dennison, of Malton Police Station, awarded SC Mick Wall with a tankard for completing 30 years service as a special constable in Ryedale.

Insp Dennison said: “SC Wall has given up many hours of his own time to patrol the streets of Ryedale. His recent duties have been monitoring the CCTV in Malton Police Station so that the Street Angels can go out on patrol.

"He also comes into Malton Station every Sunday to carry out vehicle checks on all our police vehicles which allows more time for officers to be out patrolling the streets.

“This is a great achievement and we all hope he continues his regular duties.”
