He said: “I’m looking forward to being back with the team and working within the community.

“We’re determined to make our communities even better places by listening to the issues that affect local people and working with residents and partner agencies to improve these.

“We’re always keen for people to get in contact and tell us what it is that affects them and I would urge anyone who has got any issues they’d like to discuss to contact us.”

Sunderland West Neighbourhood Policing Team Inspector, Cheryl Warcup, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Colin back to the team and are sure the community will be looking forward to seeing him again.”
