PCSO’s Update

Hemingford Road, St Ives – At some time during the night of Saturday 22nd / Sunday 23rd October, criminal damage was caused to a wheelbarrow outside a house on Hemingford Road. The barrow is used to sell fruit to passers-by on an honesty basis, and the culprits damaged apples that were in the barrow, a plastic box used to hold coins, and a sign advertising the fruit.

Galley Hill, A14 – Police were called to a collision between a car and a lorry at the Galley Hill flyover on the A14 at 5:00 pm on Tuesday 25th October. An ambulance was called to deal with slight injuries to the occupants of the car, but the incident was quickly cleared up.

Banks End, Wyton – Another collision occurred on the afternoon of Tuesday 25th October, this time between two cars on the A1123 at Banks End, Wyton. One car was seriously damaged and an ambulance was needed to deal with injuries to the occupants. The second car was also damaged and not drivable. Both vehicles were removed from the scene through their owners’ insurance companies, and the road was clear again by 5:30 pm.

Houghton Hill – Police received a report of young people trespassing in the grounds of the disused Houghton Grange research station at 5:00 pm on Saturday 29th October. Up to six children believed to be aged between 12 and 14 had been seen climbing on the roof of the building. However, they had then been seen leaving the site so police attendance was not required.


It is Trick-or-Treat time again – this evening, Monday 31st October, children will be dressing up in scary outfits and roaming the streets, carving pumpkin lanterns and generally enjoying the thrill of being out in the dusk.

Police know that not everyone wants to take part in these goings-on and have created some posters which can be down-loaded and displayed on doors and in windows to let the trick-or-treaters know if you’d rather not be visited. You can find the posters and other Halloween guide-lines at this link: http://ow.ly/tQKn305972J .
