Today’s Basingstoke Gazette newspaper is reporting that part of Hampshire Constabulary’s Major Crime Unit is to relocate from Basing View to the Whitchurch police station on Dances Lane.

The paper states that no final date has yet been set for the move, although work is being carried out at the station to create a major-incident suite and ensuring the station is “fit for purpose”.

About £50,000 will be spent on the move in total, an assistant chief constable is quoted as saying.
