Good Afternoon, Earith and Needingworth District Members –

Bridge End, Earith – A group of young people were seen damaging a storage shed on the recreation field at Bridge End, Earith, on Monday evening, 16th September. Planks fixed over the doors were removed, items stored in the shed taken out, and a small fire was started, however no serious damage was caused. Investigations are continuing. (Ref 35/66877/19)
Church Street, Needingworth – A break in at a house on Church Street, Needingworth, was discovered on Tuesday 17th September. Neighbours noticed that patio doors at the back of the house had been forced at some time during the night whilst the owners were absent. Although it appears that the intruders had carried out an untidy search, at the moment, nothing is thought to have been stolen. Police have made enquiries at neighbouring houses and scenes-of-crime officers have also attended. (Ref 35/66608/19)
Church Street, Needingworth – A police patrol discovered a suspicious car in a car park on Church Street, Needingworth, late on Saturday evening, 21st September, with two males inside.
