Weekly Policing Update - Warboys and Bury District
Alert message sent 19/04/2020 13:32:00
Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good Afternoon, Warboys and Bury District Members –
We Still Need To Stay Home …
Police have received quite a few reports of groups of people apparently ignoring the social-distancing regulations, and have attended and given words of advice where necessary - but overall, feedback from patrols is that people are generally abiding by the rules, staying at home and only going out when it is essential. Thank you to everyone for doing this – you are actively helping to save lives.
Now to our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, covering the period 11th to 18th April. I’m sorry this report covers a longer period than usual, and also may not include everything significant that has happened over the period – there is an on-going technical glitch which hopefully will be resolved soon.
RAF Upwood, Bury – Police responded to a report of a large group of people and several cars congregating on the disused RAF Upwood site on Sunday afternoon, 12th April. When officers arrived they quickly located the trespassers and their vehicles and instructed them to leave the site. However, after the officers had resumed their patrols, a further report was received saying that the group was gathering again. Officers returned and dispersed the group a second time.
