Weekly Policing Update - St Ives District

Alert message sent 10/12/2019 17:39:00

Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary

Good Evening, St Ives District Members –

Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, reported to police during the period 3rd to 9th December:

Lavender Way – The front and rear number plates were stolen from a silver Ford car whilst it was left in a car-parking area at Lavender Way during the night of Wednesday 4th / Thursday 5th December. (Ref 35/86905/19)

Lysander Close – A blue Ford car was stolen from outside its owner’s house on Lysander Close at some time overnight on Thursday 5th / Friday 6th December. It is thought that the keys may have inadvertently been left in the vehicle at the time. No-one has reported noticing anything suspicious in the area but it is hoped that CCTV may have recorded images of the theft taking place. (Ref 35/87137/19)

Somersham Road – There was a break-in at a business on Somersham Road at some time between 5:30 pm on Saturday 7th and midday on Sunday 8th December. Intruders forced both front and rear doors of the building and then broke into an internal office area, but at the moment there are no details about what may have been stolen. (Ref 35/87644/19)

Pettis Road – An opportunist thief ran off with a set of house and car keys that had been inadvertently dropped on the ground by a resident of Pettis Road returning home from a shopping trip on Sunday afternoon, 8th December. The male picked the keys up and ran off in the direction of Hill Rise. The keys were later anonymously returned with a short note of apology. (Ref 35/87686/19)

Houghton Road – Police seized and towed away a silver Ford car found on Houghton Road on Sunday evening, 8th December, when checks showed that there was no valid licence, insurance or MoT certificate. The driver was also reported for the offences. (Ref CC-08122019-0410)
And Finally – Huntingdon Southern Bypass Now Open.
As I am sure you are well aware, the new A14 Huntingdon southern by-pass opened to traffic on Monday 9th December and the old section of road between Godmanchester and Swavesey has been re-numbered as the A1307.
There is no longer any access between Godmanchester and the Spittals junction, and work will be starting soon on demolishing the old fly-over across the railway line and Brampton Road in Huntingdon.
The latest information on the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme can be found on the Highways England web-site at:
