Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good Afternoon, Ramsey District Members –
The Lockdown Continues …
Police have continued to respond to reports of groups of people apparently ignoring the Covid-19 regulations and gathering in public spaces or in private houses and gardens. Where necessary, people have been dispersed with words of advice given and the need to stay home and observe social distancing has been explained.
However, overwhelmingly, people are abiding by the rules, staying at home and only going out when it is essential. Thank you to everyone for doing this – it is vital in helping to save lives.
Now to our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, covering the period 19th to 25th April:

Harper’s Drove, Ramsey Heights – Police seized and towed away a red Seat car found on Harper’s Drove, Ramsey Heights, early on Tuesday morning, 21st April, when checks showed that it had no valid insurance. (Ref CC-21042020-0050)

Blenheim Road, Ramsey – Police were called to close Blenheim Road at just before midnight on Wednesday evening, 22nd April, so that the Fire Brigade could deal with a blaze in a shed that had spread to a neighbouring house.
