Police have issued an appeal after a car crashed into seating next to Arnold’s Market Place last night (29).

The Force said the incident happened at about 10.30pm.

Two people were seen running away from the vehicle. No injuries were reported and no arrests have been made to date.

Inspector Chris Pearson: “Our enquiries into this incident are ongoing and I’m urging anyone who has any information about what happened, and who hasn’t already come forward, to please get in touch with us.

Saw this earlier near cross keys, physically saw the crash too, hopefully they catch the guy, they can get the forensics off if the airbag anyway so fingers crossed

“Did you see these two people running away from the scene? If you have any information which could help us with our enquiries we want to hear from you.

“We have PCSOs on patrol in the town centre today offering reassurance to residents and I’d encourage  anyone with any concerns to speak to one of our officers.”

Ben Thornton was finishing his shift at the Cross Keys on Front Street last night and witnessed the incident.

He took a video and posted it on Facebook of the aftermath.

He said: “I was finishing my shift at work and witnessed this car come screaming down the road.

“It’s clearly a stolen car or something. It’s smashed, the airbag is deployed and he [the driver] darted off.”

Anyone with any information about the incident is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 888 of 29 September 2019, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
