Lea Road, Hemingford Grey – Someone stole an elderly lady’s walking frame from where it had been left outside her house on Lea Road, Hemingford Grey, at some time between 10:00 pm on Tuesday 13th, and 3:00 pm on Wednesday 14th February. (Ref CF0086640218)

Potton Road, Hilton – Intruders tried to break in to farm buildings on Potton Road, Hilton, at 9:00 pm on Wednesday 14th February, but were disturbed and fled when an alarm sounded. A small car seen leaving the location may have been their getaway vehicle. (Ref CF0087540218)

Dunnock Way, St Ives – Police received a report of three people behaving suspiciously on Dunnock Way, St Ives, very early on Friday morning, 16th February. The two men and a woman had been seen behind gardens, climbing through a gap in a hedge and carrying a large bag. Police were quickly on the scene and searched the area, but nothing suspicious was found. (Ref CC-16022018-0005)

A14 Near Gore Tree Road Junction, Hemingford Grey – Police dealt with two collision incidents on opposite sides of the A14 near the Gore Tree Road junction at Hemingford Grey, at around 1:30 pm on Friday 16th February. It is possible that the first incident precipitated the second, as drivers’ attention was distracted. Four cars were involved on the eastbound carriageway and three on the westbound. Very fortunately, no-one was seriously hurt although an ambulance was called for one person with slight injuries. The carriageways were clear by 4:00 pm although recovery services were still on the scene and dealing with the damaged vehicles for a bit longer. (Ref CC-16022018-0244)

A14 Hemingford Grey – Police received a call for help from a female motor-cyclist whose machine had broken down on the A14 near Hemingford Grey in the dark and wet on Monday evening, 19th February. The woman had no-one else in the area who could help, and so because of the potential dangers and the exceptional circumstances, police arranged for Highways officers to transport her to Bar Hill. (Ref CC-19022018-0463)
