Excessive speed causes accident

A 17 YEAR old teenager is to be reported to the procurator fiscal following a road accident at Gremista, in Lerwick, in the early hours of Saturday.

Police said it was fortunate that no one was injured in the one vehicle accident, which left the young man’s car extensively damaged.

Sergeant Gordon Fowler said this morning (Monday) that the accident was caused by “excessive speed for the road conditions”.

Meanwhile, police are calling for witnesses to come forward after the payphone at the Vidlin ferry terminal was damaged in an act of “senseless vandalism”, sometime between Thursday and yesterday (Sunday). 

Police also said that a 30 year man was arrested and will be reported to the procurator fiscal for shoplifting from one of the Lerwick supermarkets, on Sunday.
