Chief Inspector Lynne Lancaster, who co-ordinated the day, said: “Operation Duxford is a broader term for concentrated, high impact days of action that we carry out across the towns of South Yorkshire and our big city, on a regular basis.”

She said Operation Duxford focuses on concerns raised by communities.

She added: “It’s not just about enforcement, you’ll notice that we’ve got officers in different areas, talking to people and having conversations about where they live and what they’re worried about.”
