Good Afternoon, Hemingfords District Members –
I hope everyone had a good Easter - if you are a sun-lover, it has certainly been a wonderful few days!
Meanwhile, here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 16th to 23rd April:
Fenstanton Road, Hilton – The owner of a property on Fenstanton Road, Hilton, disturbed three intruders wearing balaclava helmets when he investigated a noise outside, late on Tuesday evening, 16th April. The males were coming out of a shed and were threatening towards the victim before making off in their vehicle. Nothing is thought to have been stolen. (Ref 35/26403/19)
Church Lane, Hilton – An unknown person damaged the wing-mirror of a blue Citroen car whilst it was left parked outside a house on Church Lane, Hilton, on Wednesday morning, 17th April. (Ref 35/26535/19)
Houghton Grange, Houghton Hill – A man accompanied by three teenagers was seen entering the grounds of the derelict Houghton Grange site at around midday on Thursday 18th April. The trespassers entered one of the disused buildings on the site, before leaving when challenged by security staff. The site is dangerous due to the derelict and dilapidated buildings where there is a likelihood of exposed asbestos. Damage to a boundary fence was discovered shortly afterwards. (Ref 35/26783/19) Banks End, Wyton – A man’s ‘Trek’ mountain bike was stolen from a riverside location at Bank’s End, Wyton, on Friday afternoon, 19th April. (Ref 35/27063/19) Common Lane, Hemingford Abbots – There was a break-in at a house on Common Lane, Hemingford Abbots, at some time between Thursday afternoon, 18th, and midday on Monday 22nd April, whilst the owners were away. Intruders used a rock to smash a window in patio doors leading into the kitchen, but there were also signs of attempted entry through a first-floor window as well. A neighbour heard an alarm sounding late on the Thursday evening, but could not see anything suspicious, and the alarm stopped after a few minutes. At the moment it is not thought that anything was stolen. (Ref 35/27980/19) A14 Westbound, Hemingford Abbots – Police, Fire and ambulance crews were called to an incident on the westbound A14 at Hemingford Abbots on Friday afternoon, 19th April, where a single car had left the carriageway and crashed into a ditch. The westbound carriageway was closed whilst the emergency services dealt with the incident, in which one person was unhappily reported to have been injured. A roadside blood-alcohol test returned a positive result. (Ref CC-19042019-0338)
