Temporary closure of police station

Somerset Police Station was closed until further notice after it lost part of its roof during Hurricane Humberto.

Officers and staff were temporarily relocated to the Dockyard Marine & Community Policing office.

Nobody was hurt in the incident when the island was battered by winds on Wednesday.

A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said yesterday: “A full assessment of the damage is taking place and members of the public are advised to avoid the property until the building is fully repaired.”

He said western parish residents can use the main police phone number 295-0011 or visit the Dockyard police office at 2 Sally Port Lane, Dockyard, next to the Makin' Waves store.
