Good Afternoon, Warboys and Bury District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, covering the period 19th to 25th May:
A141 Roundabout, Warboys – Police and an ambulance were called to an incident at a roundabout on the A141 at Warboys on Saturday evening, 23rd May, involving a single car. One person was reported to have been taken to hospital with slight injuries. (Ref CC-23052020-0323)
RAF Upwood – Police received a report of a noise disturbance coming from the disused RAF Upwood site on Monday afternoon, 25th May. It was thought that off-road scrambler bikes with noisy exhausts may be racing around the site. Unfortunately no police resources were free to investigate at the time, due to other higher priority calls in the queue. (Ref CC-23052020-0453)
RAF Upwood – A lorry trying to make a delivery to a business on the disused RAF Upwood base was unable to enter the site on Monday afternoon, 25th May, due to a large number of cars parked near the entrance blocking access. Two particular cars blocking the entrance were moved away and the lorry was able to continue with its delivery. (Ref CC-25052020-0321)
Turf Fen, Warboys – A white van rammed a pair of wooden farm gates at Turf Fen, Warboys, on Monday evening, 25th May, stealing one of the pair and damaging the other. Residents heard a loud bang and saw the van reversing at speed along the road, and then discovered the theft and damage. (Ref 35/34121/20)
And Finally - #NotJustArrests !
When they are able, officers on patrol like to bring a smile to the faces of children who are stuck in the house, coping with difficulties such as lockdown and the Coronavirus situation. Here are three examples of how Huntingdonshire officers have cheered up local families this week:
On Wednesday 20th May, a police patrol was able to drop by and cheer up a six year old girl and her two year old brother, coping with having been in lockdown since March. The young lady has a debilitating medical condition, but she was delighted by the police car’s flashing lights and the officers were equally impressed by her amazing spirit.
On Friday morning, 22nd May, officers dropped round to see a young lady who had just celebrated her seventh birthday. Due to a rare medical condition, this brave girl has had to spend a lot of time in hospital, and is due for another operation sometime soon. The officers loved meeting her and hearing about her hopes and ambitions, which include riding horses and one day maybe joining the police herself!
Also on Friday, two PCSOs found time to drop by and surprise another young lady who was celebrating her eighth birthday. She was apparently very impressed with the police car’s flashing lights and siren, as well as birthday wishes from the Force Control Room sent over the radio!
