Stanhope police appeal for help in solving photo mystery

The Northern Echo: Do you know any of the officers? Contact PC Crampsie on 101 Do you know any of the officers? Contact PC Crampsie on 101

POLICE are appealing for information – but this time it’s to help them identify their own officers rather than solve a crime.

Members of the Weardale Neighbourhood Beat team came across this picture of their predecessors and are eager to find out more information about those photographed.

The picture, dating from 1935, shows officers based in Stanhope Police Station.

Current Weardale beat officer PC Billy Crampsie said: “We would love to know all about the people in the picture and would appeal for anyone who knows the officers to tell us about them.

“If you look carefully, they have been really clever with their editing.

“It looks like the officer second from the right on the second row was not there at the time the picture was taken and has been inserted later.

“It looks like a brilliant bit of photo-editing and if anyone knows how they would have done it in those days I would really like to know.”

To help the police identify the officers or explain the picture edit, contact PC Crampsie at Stanhope Police Station on 101.
