Police are appealing for witnesses and information to help find the driver of a car that smashed into cemetery gates in Gainsborough - almost hitting a pedestrian with a pram.

At about 11.30am on Thursday, a blue Volkswagen polo is believed to have been driving on Hickman Hill when it hit the wrought iron fence. The car then drove off and swerved onto the pavement again, narrowly avoiding a pedestrian with a pram.

The car has been recovered but police have not yet been able to trace the driver as the vehicle was recently sold. Enquiries are on-going to trace the new owner.

If you know who was involved, or are indeed the driver in question, contact police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 157 of 21/01/2016. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
