A dedicated Thame Police Community Support Officer has been named as the best in Oxfordshire.

Diane Jackson received the honour as part of the Community Policing Awards following nominations from residents, businesses and other organisations.

Ms Jackson has been a PCSO in the area since 2004 and is membership secretary for the Lea Park Residents Association.

She has been described as someone capable of getting on with all ages and types of people and with a real common sense approach.

One officer said the knowledgeable Ms Jackson could teach officers a thing or two about their beat.
