Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary
Good Afternoon, The Hemingfords District Members –
Before getting onto the details of local incidents this week, we start with a reminder of the new Coronavirus legislation announced by the Prime Minister that came into effect on Monday 14th September:
‘The Rule of Six’
We must not meet with members of other households in groups of more than 6 people. This applies both indoors and outdoors, including in private homes.
There are some exceptions to this new law. Places that are Covid-19-secure, such as places of worship, restaurants and hospitality venues, can still host larger numbers in total, but groups of up to six must not mix or form larger groups.
The rule does not apply to individual households or ‘support bubbles’ of more than 6, who will still be able to gather together.
Education and work locations are unaffected, and organised team sports will still be able to proceed, as will weddings and funerals of up to 30 persons.
From Monday 14th September, the new limit will be enforceable by law.
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 8th to 15th September:
Huntingdon Road Area, Wyton – Two males were disturbed apparently in the act of trying to force open the patio doors at a house in the Huntingdon Road area of Wyton in the early hours of Saturday morning, 12th September. The males ran off when challenged, climbing over the back garden fence into the gardens of neighbouring properties, damaging a greenhouse in the process.
Police also responded to other reports of rowdy behaviour and a disturbance in the street at around the same time. Officers carried out house-to-house enquiries and investigations are continuing. (Refs 35/61960/20 and 35/61971/20)
Huntingdon Road, Wyton – Police received a report of cars racing around Houghton and Wyton villages in the early hours of Saturday 12th September, creating a disturbance and a danger to other road users. A police patrol was dispatched and checked the area but the speeding cars were no longer there. (Ref CC-12092020-0032)
Dunnock Way, St Ives – A car left in a parking bay on Dunnock Way was damaged on Saturday afternoon, 12th September, when a person kicked its passenger door. The door was dented and the paintwork scratched, and the car’s alarm was triggered. Dash-cam footage recorded the incident taking place. (Ref 35/62000/20)
