Police cars damaged as officers dealt with anti-social behaviour in Ellesmere Port

Police cars were damaged while officers attended reports of youths throwing fireworks in the Bunbury Green area of Ellesmere Port on Bonfire Night.

The Ellesmere Port Local Policing Unit ran a generally highly successful operation aiming to prevent anti-social behaviour throughout the Halloween and Bonfire Night period.

But Cheshire Constabulary has been left with a £1,180 repair bill after two police cars were damaged while officers attended reports of a group of youths throwihttps://www.cheshire.police.uk/media/198535/damaged-police-cars.jpg?width=280ng fireworks in a public place.

One of the cars had its windscreen cracked by a firework as the officers searched for offenders on foot. The other suffered damage to its wing mirror, bonnet and rear nearside window after officers had got out of the car to assist a Police Community Support Officer who was having fireworks thrown at her by a group of youths. So far four arrests have been made in relation to the incidents attended in the area on Bonfire Night.

Detective Inspector Nigel Parr, of the Ellesmere Port Local Policing Unit, said: “Between around 7pm and 7.30pm on Bonfire Night officers were dealing with reports of a group of youths throwing fireworks and displaying disorderly behaviour in the Bunbury Green area of Ellesmere Port. When officers located the youths they had missiles thrown at them and when they returned to their cars they discovered that two of the vehicles had been damaged. This type of violent and dangerous behaviour will not be tolerated. We are committed to doing all that we can to tackle such behaviour and we will continue to work with the community and partner agencies to ensure that Ellesmere Port is a safe place to live and work.

“We made four arrests on Bonfire Night and images of other offenders were potentially captured on officers’ body-worn cameras during this period of disorder. We are currently reviewing several hours of footage as well as footage from CCTV cameras in an effort to identify all of those involved. I urge anyone who witnessed criminal or anti-social behaviour in the Ellesmere Port LPU area on Bonfire Night or knows the identities of any of the offenders to get in touch.”

A 15-year-old boy from Great Sutton, Ellesmere Port, was arrested on suspicion of committing a public order offence and resisting a constable in the execution of their duty and a 16-year-old boy from Ellesmere Port was arrested on suspicion of resisting a constable in the execution of their duty. They have both been released pending further enquiries. Two other boys from Ellesmere Port, aged 15 and 16, were also arrested on suspicion of resisting a constable in the execution of their duty. They have both been released without charge.

Anyone with information about criminal or anti-social behaviour in the Ellesmere Port LPU area on Bonfire Night should call Cheshire Constabulary on 101, give the details via https://cheshire.police.uk/contact/general-enquiries or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Detectives appeal for witnesses after burglars target two houses in Ellesmere Port  

Detectives are appealing for witnesses to come forward after two houses were targeted by burglars in Ellesmere Port.

 

Between 4.35pm and 5pm on Tuesday 6 November offenders broke into a house on Rivacre Road, ransacked the home before leaving empty handed. On the same afternoon, offenders dressed in dark clothing with their faces covered, attended Lewis Close where they attempted to burgle another unoccupied house between 5.30pm and 5.45pm. During both offences a suspicious black Audi S3 was sighted by witnesses.

 

Detective Sergeant Graeme Carvell, of Ellesmere Port CID, said: “As part of our ongoing investigation we believe both houses were targeted by the same burglars. While we follow a number of lines of enquiry we’re keen to hear from anyone who may have any information. If you were in the area around the time the offences occurred and witnessed anyone acting suspiciously in a black Audi please come forward by calling 101. Being burgled can make victims lose their sense of safety and security and we’re determined to catch whoever is responsible.”

 

With the clocks having gone back and the nights now darker a lot sooner officers want to take this opportunity to urge residents to think about security in their homes to help deter criminals.

 

DS Carvell added: “By taking a couple of minutes to follow these simple steps it will greatly help householders in reducing their chances of becoming a victim.”

  • Consider buying timer switches to turn on table lamps, standard lamps and radios around the home as it gets dark to make it look as if someone is at home
  • Fit external security lights around your home, garage or any sheds etc
  • Ensure that your home is kept secure at all times - even when you are at home
  • Keep desirable items out of view to passers-by - valuables should not be visible from windows and doors in your home
  • The same applies to valuable items stored away in garages or sheds - ensure that garages and sheds are locked with strong padlocks and, ideally, fitted with an alarm

In this instance the burglary took place while the victims were at home and one of the offenders – a teenage boy – raised a crowbar towards one of them in a threatening manner. We are determined to find out who the offenders are and make them face the consequences of their actions. I urge anyone who believes they may know the identities of the offenders to come forward. I also want to hear from anyone who witnessed or believes they may have dashcam or CCTV footage of any aspect of the incident or saw anything suspicious in the Chester Road area of Kelsall or the Fluin Lane area of Frodsham.”

Police are investigating the death of a 49 year old woman in Burtonwood are appealing for dashcam footage.

At 10.07pm on Friday 2 November police were called to stables at Old Alder Lane in Burtonwood following reports of concern for welfare of a 49-year-old woman. Sadly the woman died at the scene. The death is being treated as suspicious and a 50-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

DI Adam Waller said: “As part of our enquiries we are keen to speak to any potential witnesses or view any dashcam footage from anyone who had travelled along Alder Lane near to the “Fiddle I’th Bag” public house or Old Alder Lane in Burtonwood between the hours of 7pm and 10pm. If you were in the area around this time and have any information or have dashcam footage please submit it using our dashcam submission form. The area is quite rural but there is a pub nearby so there is likely to have been some traffic around this time. I’d like to reassure residents that we are working tirelessly to establish the circumstances surrounding the death and are providing an increased presence in the area.”
