POLICE are investigating three separate road incidents which have taken place across the isles over the last few days, including one that saw a young girl being knocked off her bike by a slow moving vehicle.
The girl was left uninjured but shaken after the incident, which happened at the Voxter Road in Cunningsburgh on Tuesday (30 May) at around 8.30am.
Police want to speak to a female with blonde hair who was seen driving a large black vehicle similar to a Citroen Dispatch van in the area at the time.
Officers also want to hear from anyone who may have seen a black motorbike carry out an alleged careless overtaking manoeuvre on the A971 near to Tingwall Airport on Monday (29 May) which caused an oncoming vehicle to take evasive action.
The bike was seen overtaking a number of vehicles at around 3.30pm.
Finally, police are keen to hear from any witnesses who may have seen damage caused to a blue Toyota in the Co-op car park in Brae between midday and 12.15pm on Sunday (28 May).
They are particularly interested to speak to the driver of a blue mini bus which is said to have been parked in the vicinity.
Anyone with information about any of the incidents are asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
