Bicycle Accident Theft of Parcels Newsletter and Road Safety (Leicestershire Police)


We hope you are keeping well. Here is an update and please see attached the Burbage Police monthly newsletter. You can decide what our priories should be by filling a survey with the links at the bottom of this message.

Attempt Residential Burglary at Rosewood Close at around 02:00 on the 1st of March. Attempts were made to gain access to the property via a garage door but were unsuccessful. If you saw or heard anything suspicious in the area, please get in touch.

We are attempting to locate the driver of a vehicle involved in an incident where a young boy was hit by a vehicle on Brookside, close to the Featherston Drive entry at around 08:00 on the 2nd of March. The vehicle involved may be a Black Corsa. If you witnessed the incident or have any Dash Cam footage and were driving along Brookside around this time, please get in touch. The boy went to hospital and has a broken clavicle (collarbone). He is at home recovering. The crime number is 22000123067, please drop me an email to with any information. 

This week I have been putting up 10 signs I have managed to get my hands on. Hopefully these will help raise awareness and help road safety in Burbage. I have tried to locate these signs where I am aware school children cross on busy roads. If you are aware of any other locations that would benefit, please pass on the street and a house number where it would be relevantly positioned. I am trying to get some more. Locations include Forresters Road, Brookside, Coventry Road, Sketchley Road, Rugby Road and Far Lash.

Report of a Theft of a bag from a mobility scooter on Tilton Road on the 1st of March. Items have been recovered but the investigation is ongoing to find out the circumstances of the incident.

Theft from an Amazon delivery van on Willow close at around 16:10 on the 3rd of March. If you have any CCTV or Dash Cam of this incident, please get in touch. The suspect vehicle was in the Willow close, Rugby Road and Sketchley Road area around this time. This incident is under investigation.

Our local priorities are in response to the feedback we get from our Neighbourhood link surveys, provided by you. The more people completing them, the better picture we get of what residents would like us to address and any positive things you would like to say. You may automatically get a reminder to complete a surveys monthly if you requested to fill in surveys. You can use the links below to complete surveys. Drop me a message if you would like to fill in surveys going forward and I will change the setting for you. (Your views matter) (Anti-social behaviour) (Road safety)

Thank you for your time and take care,
