Police have issued a warning after fireworks were stolen from a Codicote farm.


Police are appealing for witnesses today after a hit and run in Stevenage yesterday afternoon.

The crash took place at about 2.30pm when one of three mopeds travelling along Elbow Lane from Oak Cross collided with a dark blue Mercedes.

It has been reported that the driver of the car initially stopped at the scene, got out of his car and argued with the riders of the mopeds before getting back in and driving off in the direction of Broadwater Crescent.

The injured moped rider, who is in his early twenties and from Stevenage, was taken to Lister Hospital to be treated for his injuries which are not thought to be life threatening.

Investigating officer PC Pete Talbot said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the area and saw the collision, or the events leading up to and after it, to please get in contact as soon as possible.

“We are very keen to trace this blue Mercedes and believe the car will have sustained damage to its passenger side door and mirror.

“If you are aware of such a vehicle or have any idea who could be responsible, please contact me as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Talbot via the non-emergency number 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
