Man arrested after Wisbech town centre accident

POLICE have arrested a man today (Friday) after a non-stop accident in Wisbech town centre in which an elderly woman sustained injuries.

Police put out an appeal earlier today for witnesses after the accident at 10.55am in High Street.

The woman was hurt while walking on the pavement near Shoe Zone. She was in collision with a dark vehicle which failed to stop.

A police spokesman said the woman’s injuries are not thought to be series.
