Good Afternoon, Upwood and The Raveleys District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 7th to 15th July. I’m sorry this is a couple of days later than usual, due to a technical problem.
Clay Lane, Abbots Ripton – Police and an ambulance were called to Clay Lane, Abbots Ripton, on Tuesday afternoon, 7th July, where a car had left the road and crashed into bushes. One person was reported to have been slightly injured and recovery services were called to tow the crashed car away. (Ref CC-07072020-0253)
Huntingdon Road, Abbots Ripton – There was another road incident in Abbots Ripton on Tuesday afternoon, 7th July, when police and an ambulance were called to a collision involving two cars on Huntingdon Road. One person was reported to have been slightly hurt. (Ref CC-07072020-0278)

High Street, Upwood – Police and the Fire Brigade were called to a road incident on High Street, Upwood, late on Friday evening, 10th July, where a car had collided with a parked vehicle.

And Finally… Police Warning About Dog Thefts
Police are warning dog-owners to be extra-vigilant following a rise in the number of thefts reported across the county in recent weeks. Since May, there have been 17 incidents of dogs stolen from homes and kennels in Cambridgeshire, and this reflects a rising trend nationally, linked to an increase in the prices charged for dogs and puppies.
Locally, thefts have been reported in Stretham, Bluntisham, Peterborough, Horningsea, Stow-cum-Quy and Wilburton, with an attempted theft reported in Haddenham.
