Delivery driver attacked

A man was attacked as he delivered groceries in Yaxley near Peterborough.

The 40 year old was by his van in Landsdowne Road, at about 7.30pm on Tuesday (January 29), when the men approached him.

They demanded the van keys and his wallet.

The victim told them to go away, but as he turned back to the van they closed the door on his arm causing serious injuries. Nothing was taken during the incident.

The men were white, aged between 16-20. One spoke with a foreign accent.

I would like to hear from anyone who has any information about this robbery, particularly any witnesses who may have seen the incident at the van."

Sophie inquest: Eleven trees were High Risk

At an inquest into Sophie's death held in Huntingdon in December, coroner David Morris recorded a narrative verdict.

The inquest heard the tree was examined prior to the incident and if recommendations had been implemented, the tree would have been made smaller, greatly reducing the risk.

It was found 11 trees in Middletons Road recreation ground were found to be a "high risk" hazard that required immediate removal and a further 18 were found with defects also requiring immediate treatment.

"Sophie's parents are still struggling to come to terms with the fact that their daughter would still be here today if these checks had been carried out."
