Hit and Run on Ufford's High Street

5 January 2018

At approximately 6.30pm on 4th January, a hit and run incident occurred on Ufford's High Street.

The offending vehicle was a silver coloured family saloon, travelling from the Wickham Market direction at well over 30mph. It hit a stationary vehicle 2 houses down from the Crown Public House. Unfortunately the driver was still inside the stationary vehicle and has sustained injuries.

The offending vehicle did not brake before the impact or stop after the incident but must have sustained substantial damage. Please can you keep an eye out for the car having been abandoned in the village.

If you find the vehicle or have any information that you feel may assist the police please call 101 and quote incident 322 040118 (PC Daniel Ormes) or call Jo on 07775 542453.

Uninvited Guests

24 October 2017

We have received reports of a man entering a property in Lower Street, uninvited. He might be described as a 'Hawker' but it was unclear as to what he was selling.

He is described as a white male, 5' 10'', UK accent but not a traditional Suffolk one. The house owner is incapacitated at present so didn't see the vehicle he was driving and he left quickly.

If you experience an incident such as this please contact the police by calling 101. It may be an innocent sales person selling his wears, however, it may also be someone with other intensions.
