Analysis of Home Office statistics by the Liberal Democrats has shown that a total of 174 extra officers have been recruited by West Mercia Police under the Government's uplift programme that started in September 2019.
It also reveals that West Mercia Police actually went backwards in the last three months, losing 23 officers between March and June.
Residents will no longer need to walk home in the dark along the B5063 near Glovers Way, Bratton, following a seven-year campaign by the Focus team.
The new lighting, which was recently installed, was requested by Cllr Karen Tomlinson in 2015, and Cllr Kim Tonks joined the campaign last year.
'"I'm delighted. This will make the area safer, as the path is very close to the road where there are speed concerns, and a large number of vehicles travel through," Cllr Tonks highlighted. "I'd like to thank Karen for her hard work on this over many years."
Telford and Wrekin's Liberal De mocrats have called on the Government to double the Warm Home Discount for existing recipients and make it available to 747 extra pensioners across the borough.

Telford & Wrekin Lib Dems are celebrating a close win in the Lawley and Overdale Parish Council by-election.
