And a very alarming post from Kat on Statham St who says



We live at number 17. Someone has tried to burn our garden shed down. We had our bikes in there. Luckily they were well locked up so they are still there! Has anyone else had anything happen like this last night? Please be careful!

White Cat

Posted by diana b on July 16, 2017 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (0)

If you have a white cat and s/he doesn't come home, then it could be the cat that was run over near Wheeldon Ave/ Parkfields Drive. Unfortunately, it died instantly -just now about 12.40, Sunday lunchtime.

The driver is trying to trace the owner by knocking on doors and will send in a photo if he doesn't track owners down.

He did say about ringing the council but as it is a Sunday, doubt they would be there soon and the owners may prefer to take their cat home themselves.

Recognise this boy?

The police would like to speak to the youth in the photo - maybe he saw something when the high ropes in Markeaton Park were vandalised?
