I got a call at about 11.00 yesterday morning from one of the Leabridge Safer Neighbourhoods officers (Pc343GD). She was responding to the message I'd left on the dedicated phone number (07884 117293) the previous morning about Thursday's hit-and-run accident and the curious case of the motorcyclist who came down my street shortly afterwards, shedding his leathers and other garments and dumping them in various receptacles. The officer apologised for taking a day to get back to me - she'd been off since Saturday and was just catching up - and said that, in her opinion, the biker's jacket and fleece which I now have in my, er, custody, were very likely to be of interest to the officers investigating the case. These officers would be from the Traffic department and she would contact them on my behalf, although that could be tricky over the weekend. I look forward to hearing from them. Watch this space.
