Four cars involved in car crash in Weymouth

Police are appealing for witnesses after four cars were involved in a crash in Weymouth.

At around 1pm on Sunday 6th April, police were called to the collision at the junction of Chickerell Road and Lynch Road.

A grey Renault Laguna was travelling along Chickerell Road heading towards the Granby Industrial Estate when it collided with a silver Honda CR-V and a black Vauxhall Agila. The Honda then struck a grey Volkswagen Touareg.

Police Constable Nick Gravenor, of Weymouth Police, said: “The road was closed for about an hour and a half in order for officers to investigate the scene and for paramedics to treat the slight injuries of all motorists involved.

Anyone who has information is asked to call 101, quoting 6:197.

Dorset Police unveil Tardis-style box

They disappeared from our streets in the late sixties, although a certain Time Lord has continued to make use of one for his travels. Today, a 21st century police box was unveiled in the main shopping precinct at Boscombe in Dorset.

The police hope it will reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the area. But, as Martin Dowse reports, the launch felt rather more like a Dr Who convention.

Police on the move

It's one of the things people often ask for from their police force - more bobbies on the beat. But a report on a trial of mobil police stations shows that they have been so poorly attended that sometimes - no one turned up at all.

Kent Police Commissioner Ann Barnes launched the scheme last summer, saying they would increase police visibility. And she insists the the programme is working. Nashreen Issa reports.
