Overnight on Monday (7th November), a dark coloured estate car was seen to swerve and collide with a large section of hedge outside a cottage on Appleford Road. As a result of the collision, an ornamental well in the cottage garden was damaged.

A passing tractor driver helped the driver of the car to remove the vehicle from the hedge, but the man then drove off from the scene without leaving any details.
