THE biggest town on the Isle of Wight is set to see its police station close to the public.
Police confirmed today (Tuesday) the front desk at Ryde would close on June 9, due to low usage.
A statement said: "During the period of review, the usage was less than nine per cent of the one based in Newport and equated to less than three people visiting the front office each day.
"While the changes come into effect from June 23, Ryde Police Station is closing from June 9 in response to staff shortages out of our control."
The decision means the Island will only have one front desk open to the public in Newport.
