CRACKDOWN COMING ON TRAFFIC BAN DODGERS
Haverhill police were planning to come down harder on motorists who broke the law on pedestrianisation.
After complaints from Queen Street traders that drivers were still using the road in the restricted hours recently introduced, Haverhill’s police Inspector, Steve Brown, said a meeting was planned with the county council and borough council to see what could be done to get the pedestrianisation message across to people.
FAMILY IN FIRE ESCAPE DRAMA
A Pampisford man led his wife and their two children to safety after a fire broke out at their High Street home in the small hours of the morning.
Martyn Judd was woken by smoke coming underneath the door of his bedroom at about 3am. The smoke was coming from a fire that was spreading from the boiler room, where a freezer had caught fire.
Mr Judd woke his wife Anne and their two children Alex, 11, and Rohan, five, and led them to safety from the first floor of the 400-year-old thatched cottage before calling the fire service.
