Weekly Policing Update - Upwood and the Raveleys District

Alert message sent 21/08/2020 12:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Cambridgeshire Constabulary

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 14th to 20th August:

B1090, Towards Sawtry – Police received reports of a silver Transit van in the ditch on the B1090 towards Sawtry on Monday afternoon, 17th August. The owner had attempted to pull the van out with a tractor, but had not been able to. Police were requested to close the road for a time whilst recovery services dealt with the situation; all was clear after a few hours. (Refs CC-17082020-0210 and CC-17082020-0289)

A141 Hartford Roundabout – Police took a motorist back to his home in St Ives after he crashed his car on the A141 Hartford Roundabout late on Sunday evening, 16th August. Fortunately the driver was unhurt but trees on the roundabout were damaged and recovery services were needed to tow the car away. (Ref CC-16082020-0624)

Churchill Avenue, Wyton-on-the-Hill – Police were called to an empty property on Churchill Avenue, Wyton-on-the-Hill, on Tuesday lunchtime, 18th August, following reports of teenagers seen entering a garden shed. Officers found two young people at the location, but no signs of any damage. (Ref CC-18082020-0181)
And Finally…Action to Stop Noisy Exhausts
Using funds from the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA), Cambridgeshire Constabulary has purchased two new state-of-the-art sound monitoring kits which will alert officers at the roadside if an exhaust is too loud.

Noise pollution is a concern for many people living in our villages, towns and cities. The legal limit for cars is 80 decibels and it is against the law to modify an exhaust to be louder than this. Motorists could be given a £50 Fixed Penalty Notice for failure to maintain the exhaust system, using a vehicle with an altered exhaust system, or producing excessive noise.

Hotspot areas and car cruises across the county will be targeted and fines will be issued to help tackle anti-social motorists and make our communities quieter, safer places to live.

If there is an area you would like us to target, or to report anti-social motorists in your area, follow this link – https://www.cambs.police.uk/report/vehicles
