Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good Afternoon, Hemingfords District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 8th to 14th October:
Potton Road, Hilton – Police received reports of a grey Hyundai car on its roof on the verge at the bridge over the new A14 on Potton Road, Hilton, at midday on Thursday 10th October. One report mentioned that three or four youths had been seen running away from the car towards Fenstanton. Police arranged for it to be towed away for possible forensic examination if checks revealed that it had been stolen. (Ref CC-10102019-0158)
Weir Road, Hemingford Grey – Police received a report of two people arousing suspicion on Weir Road, Hemingford Grey, on Friday afternoon, 11th October. The two people, one male and one female, were dressed in black uniforms resembling those of police officers, and had lanyards around their necks, but no visible collar numbers. They had been asking about a non-existent cottage on the road, and the concern was that they may have been impersonating police officers or attempting to distract residents. No offences appeared to have been committed, but the Local Policing Team were made aware of the incident. (Ref CC-11102019-0213)
Hemingford Meadow, Houghton – Police received two reports of motorbikes being ridden on the footpath across Hemingford Meadow between Houghton Mill and Hemingford Abbots in the dark on Friday evening, 11th October. One report mentioned four or five machines, and the second just a single machine, thought to be an off-road bike. (Refs CC-11102019-0469 and CC-11102019-0496)
And Finally … St Ives Michaelmas Fair
The annual Michaelmas Fair is running in St Ives Town Centre from Monday morning, 14th, to Wednesday evening, 16th October. Officers from the Huntingdonshire Neighbourhood Policing Team will be patrolling the event on all three nights and hope that everyone who goes along will have a great time – the Fair is a much-loved family event. However, like at all events where there are crowds of people, please remember to keep your possessions – handbags, wallets, mobile phones and anything else you take with you - safe about your person, and be aware of who is around you at all times. Stay safe and have fun!
