Police checked the areas around California Road, Westwood Road and Meadow Lane late on Tuesday evening, 30th April, following reports of cars being driven noisily and at dangerous speeds. Nothing suspicious was found, although the drivers of three cars located on Meadow Lane were spoken to and told to move on.

Additionally, St Ives social media was alive with angry residents near the park and ride and the Waitrose car parks about the noise of squealing tyres. One angry resident said ‘perhaps it’ll quieten down when they have to pay out for new tyres!’
