ecops logo
Crime Update 5Winter threw everything at us last week, but now the milder weather is back, the sun has been shining a little bit and the daffodils are defiantly declaring the arrival of Spring! I hope everyone managed to cope with all the snow and ice, and that freezing Siberian wind.

There were some technical problems that prevented sending out an email last week, so today’s summary of offences and incidents affecting your community covers the two week period from 23rd February to 8th March:

Somersham Road, Colne – Police received a call from a driver whose car had skidded off the road and ended up on its roof in a field at Somersham Road, Colne, on Wednesday afternoon, 28th February. The driver was fortunately unhurt and was arranging recovery himself, so no police action was required, although a police patrol checked to ensure that the car was not distracting passing traffic. (Ref CC-28022018-0332)

A141 Tick Fen – Police received a report of another car in a ditch, this time early on Thursday morning, 1st March, on the A141 at Tick Fen. The driver was fortunately unhurt and was arranging recovery of his car himself, but police contacted the Highways Authority to report that snow was blowing onto the road from the nearby fields making it dangerous and requesting additional gritting. (Ref CC-01032018-0043)

South Street, Woodhurst – There was a break-in and burglary at a house on South Street, Woodhurst, at some time between Thursday 1st and Sunday 4th March, whilst the owners were absent. Intruders used a garden spade to break into a summer house in the back garden, then entered the house by forcing a window at the back. Once inside they searched through all of the rooms, but at the moment it is not certain what may have been stolen. Police have spoken to neighbours and the investigation is continuing. (Ref CF0119690318)

Church Street, Woodhurst – Police received a report of a man thought to be behaving suspiciously on Church Street, Woodhurst, on Monday evening, 5th March. The man had been seen walking up and down people’s driveways and then going into the church-yard at around 7:00 pm, but when a police patrol searched the area, nothing untoward was found. (Ref CC-05032018-0428)
