On Friday evening (October 3) police received reports of young people climbing onto the roof of Victory Hall in Somersham.

In a social media post they alerted residents and urged parents to remind their children of the “dangers of climbing buildings”.

On Saturday the officers from the St Neots Neighbourhood team were out in the rain completing several speed checks across their patch.

This included Berkley Street, Cromwell Road, Cambridge Street, and the B645 Kimbolton/Tilbrook.
