Spate of egg-throwing incidents in Cambridge and large gathering on Grantchester Meadows reported to police

Reports of anti-social behaviour and group gatherings were made to Cambridgeshire police during the course of the bank holiday weekend.

Over the Saturday, Sunday and Monday, there were five separate incidences of teenagers throwing eggs at people in Cambridge city centre.

On Friday (May 22), there was an egg-throwing incident on Trinity Street at about 7pm, with others on Saturday (May 23) on Histon Road at around 6pm, on Sunday (May 24) near the Downing College Boathouse at 6pm, and on Hills Road at around the same time.

The final report was made of egg throwing on Midsummer Common at approximately 7.30pm on Monday (May 25).

Officers are looking into the incidents.

A police spokesperson said: “We ask the public to continue to report any information they have about anti-social behaviour to us.

“The more information we have, the better picture we can build and the more efficient we can be at targeting those responsible.

“Anyone who experiences anti-social behaviour similar to the above is urged to report this.”

Anyone with further information on the egg-throwing incidents can report it online at cambs.police.uk/report or by calling 101.

On Monday, a further two calls were made to police regarding a group of at least 20 people gathered at Grantchester Meadows, in breach of the government’s social distancing guidelines.

Lots of litter and beer bottles were left behind by the crowd.

“Mass gatherings where coronavirus restrictions are being ignored should be reported so they can be dealt with appropriately,” said the police spokesperson.

“People can do so by reporting online at cambs.police.uk/coronavirus in the first instance, or by calling 101.”
