Anyone who observed any suspicious activity around the Tesco end of Lewis Street is asked to contact Stornoway Police Station on 101, quoting reference number NH424/21. The Crimestoppers number for information to be given anonymously is 0800 555111.

Window smashed on Torquil Terrace

Late at night yesterday (Sunday 18 April) a person was seen leaving Torquil Terrace on a bike immediately after a window had been broken.

The front room window was smashed at 11.55pm on Sunday and a person was then seen leaving the scene, riding a bike in the direction of Westview Terrace.

Stornoway police are keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened or who can give any further information, on the non-emergency number 101, quoting incident number NH428/21.

Police thanks for public help

An appeal for information from the public last week (Friday 16 April) helped police to trace the driver of a blue Citroen car after an incident in the Steinish area.

The car had been seen being driven erratically and police had appealed for witnesses who might be able to add to the information they already had.

Following information supplied, the driver has been traced and arrested, and enquiries are ongoing on the circumstances of the incident.

Stornoway police passed on their thanks to those members of the public who provided additional information.
