Cemetery Theft

We have received a report of the theft of items from a grave in the Whittlesey Cemetery. This dispicable act has caused considerable distress to the relative concerned. We have the deepest sympathies for the lady in question. Whilst any items left on graves are placed there at the owner’s risk, it is extremely disappointing that someone would commit theft from a graveside. 

If anyone has any information about this or any other similar crimes please inform the police via the 101 phone number. If you have been a victim of theft we would advise reporting it to the police. 

Number Plate Thefts

There have been a number of thefts of number plates in the Wisbech Area from BLUE VAUXHALL ASTRAS, therefore we would be grateful for any information regarding the theft of these number plates. In addition please contact Police if you see a Blue Vauxhall Astra in suspicious circumstances, reporting details together with the registration Number ( If Possible) to Police on 101 (999 in an emergency).
Thank you for your assistance.

Gates Go Missing

Unfortunately Whittlesey, like many other parts of the country, is not immune from crime. Most criminals have little regard for the possible consequences of their actions. With the theft of gates there can be an additional motive, that of not being able to do what they want to do irrespective of how this may affect anyone else.

The vandalism and subsequent removal of the gate across the Green Wheel/Cycleway is an example of selfish persons removing a safety feature which was intended to protect legitimate users of a public right of way. 

It is difficult to understand how a tiny minority think that they have the right to steal for profit, or remove anything which creates a barrier to their own pursuits, without appearing to consider the consequences for the majority of the population. 

Perhaps it is time for the silent majority to start to take a stand by reporting such actions to the police so that we can re-create a safer and happier environment for everyone.
