Police Appeal for Information


The following is a Public Announcement from the Police Directorate:

St Helena Police are currently appealing to the public for information regarding damage to the retaining wall on Field Road, better known as Rupert’s Road.

On Saturday, 29 June, at 1.30am, Police Officers on patrol noticed that damage had been caused to the retaining wall on Rupert’s Road. Following enquiries made at the scene, it appears that the cause of the damage is from a vehicle coming into contact with the wall.

The vehicle would have sustained damage likely to the alloy wheel which made contact with the wall. The driver did not stop to report the collision.

Approximately two metres of the wall has been damaged as a result of the collision. This has put other road users at considerable risk as these retaining walls are designed for road user safety and any damage to them causes a hazard to members of the public.

The Police urges anyone with any information regarding this damage to please contact Police Headquarters, Coleman House, on tel: 22626 or email: Emergencycontrol@helanta.co.sh.
