Weekly Policing Update - The Hemingfords District

Alert message sent 15/11/2019 16:12:00

Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary

Good Afternoon, Hemingfords District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 8th to 14th November.

You will probably be aware of the serious collision that happened on the B1040 Somersham road at the Bluntisham Heath crossroads on Thursday evening, 14th November. Police have now confirmed that there was one fatality, and several other people were seriously injured. Our thoughts go out to everyone who has been affected by this, and also our thanks to all members of the emergency services and ancillary organisations who have worked through the night and will continue to do so over the coming hours and days.
Hemingford Road, St Ives – A thief entered a house on Hemingford Road, St Ives, in the early hours of Friday 8th November, possibly via an insecure door at the rear, and stole a bank card and some cash from a lady’s handbag that had been left out in the lounge. Unfortunately, a transaction was recorded against the stolen card before the bank put a block on it. ‘Action Fraud’, the UK national centre for fraud and cyber-crime reporting, has been notified, and police have carried out enquiries at neighbouring houses, but so far no-one has reported seeing anything suspicious in the area at the time. (Ref 35/79999/19)
Chapel Lane, Houghton – Police received a report of an incident that happened on the street outside the school on Chapel Lane, Houghton, on Friday afternoon, 8th November, in which one person was seen to assault another by a physical punch. No details are known of either persons at the moment, but the incident was witnessed by numerous people. (Ref 35/80088/19)
Wyton – A gold coloured Nissan car was observed driving from Wyton towards St Ives with no lights and swerving across the road in the early hours of Wednesday morning, 13th November. It was stopped by police in St Ives and when checks showed there was no valid insurance it was seized and towed away. (Ref CC-13112019-0019)
