Good Evening, Hemingfords District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 22nd November to 2nd December – we’re back to our traditional Tuesday publication day now, so a slightly longer period is covered this week.
Lattenbury Hill, Hilton – Police, fire and ambulance crews were called to a head-on collision between two cars pulling trailers on the A1198 at Lattenbury Hill, Hilton, on Friday lunchtime, 22nd November. The road was closed for a time whilst the emergency services dealt with the incident, in which one person was reported to have been seriously injured. The road was finally re-opened at around 5:00 pm when recovery services had removed the two damaged vehicles and their trailers, and also cleared the road of the trailer contents which had spilled out.

Hemingford Road, St Ives – Thieves entered a house on Hemingford Road, St Ives, early on Sunday morning, 24th November, and stole items from a woman’s handbag, including some cash and her purse containing bank cards. Before the cards could be cancelled, one was used for a fraudulent transaction at a bank in St Ives. It is thought that the intruders may have entered via an insecure window, and then let themselves out by the backdoor. Police have made enquiries at neighbouring houses and investigations are continuing. (Ref 35/84018/19)
