As we wake up to the news of the heart-breaking loss of four lives in our village over the weekend, our hearts and thoughts are with their family and friends at this sad time.
For our community, a tragic event like this can be very worrying and frightening. Derbyshire Police continue to work hard to establish the circumstances and will provide updates, as further details become available. They believe this to be an isolated incident and have made an arrest already. The investigation is ongoing and over the next few days they will carry out further enquiries, so there will still be strong Police presence around the village and will be relying on the support of the community to deal with it sensitively.
