Re: Streets of Hebburn ~ Dorset Avenue...

The two houses looking up the street were Police Houses in the 1950s. PC Spencer and Pc Howell lived in them. I remember the daughters Marjorie Howell and Barbara Spencer.
I think PC Spencer was involved in a car chase from Washington/ White Mare Pool in the 40s or 50s and guns were involved, shots fired. I'm sure someone will remember more.(It may have been Sergeant Spencer, not PC?)
