A CRIME-FIGHTING charity is to make it easier for Wearsiders to pass on anonymous information to help catch offenders.

The independent organisation Crimestoppers has launched a mobile version of its website.

It aims to make its information more accessible and simpler for people to send details which could help solve crimes.

Since Crimestoppers was established in 1988, more than 113,000 criminals have been arrested and charged as a result of information passed ton.

More than 40 per cent of all information it now receives is given via the anonymous online form, on the website.

The organisation’s bosses said last summer’s riots generated a huge amount of information for the charity to handle.

Now the new site will allow the public to give information “on the go” in such situations anonymously.

The website can be found at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
