Good Afternoon, Upwood and The Raveleys District Members –
I hope everyone had a good Easter – if you are a sun-lover, it has certainly been a wonderful few days!
Because of the Bank Holiday break, today’s Policing Update is a double-issue, catching up with offences and incidents affecting your community reported to police during the period 12th to 25th April:
Little Raveley – There was an attempted break in at a farm building at Little Raveley in the early hours of Friday 12th April. Intruders attempted to cut through the wall of the building and in so doing, set off an alarm which is thought to have scared them off. Damage to the building was caused but fortunately no-one managed to get inside or steal anything. (Ref 35/25538/19)
Sapley Road, Kings Ripton – A motorcyclist was slightly hurt when he came off his machine at a bend on Sapley Road, Kings Ripton, at midday on Saturday 13th April. (Ref CC-13042019-0226)
