A POLICE office was opened in Buckden Millennium Centre yesterday (Tuesday) to be run two half days a week.

The office, the first of its kind in Cambridgeshire, has been opened as a pilot scheme and others will follow if it is successful.

Described as "a point of presence", the office will be open from 10am to noon on Tuesdays and from 2 to 4pm on Saturdays.
