On Crimewatch roadshow today: Can you help us find the calloused

:00:18.:00:28.
:00:28.:00:42.

driver who left an expectant mother Hello and welcome to Crimewatch

:00:42.:00:51.

Roadshow. We're live and kicking off our second week on air with an

:00:51.:00:54.

action packed programme. We're going to be asking for your help to

:00:54.:00:58.

solve everyday crime that affects us all. We have had our first

:00:58.:01:06.

arrest. More on that later. On the Roadshow today: The phone scam

:01:06.:01:11.

which left Roy thousands of pounds out of pocket. Finding evidence in

:01:11.:01:15.

the fight against crime. The specialist team searching on land

:01:15.:01:20.

and in water. Police want your help to find a driver who hit a pregnant

:01:20.:01:26.

woman and then drove away. Last week we were in the North West of

:01:26.:01:30.

England and today our team out on the road has travelled south to

:01:30.:01:33.

Sussex, way down South. Our presenter, Dave Guest, is rearing

:01:33.:01:43.
:01:43.:01:44.

to go, aren't you? Where are you? We're in the very pretty village of

:01:44.:01:47.

Alfriston, which is around 15 miles from Brighton, where Sussex Police

:01:47.:01:53.

are pioneering a Community Policing Project. It is very busy here this

:01:53.:01:56.

morning because we've got the specialist search unit from Sussex

:01:56.:02:02.

Police here. And joining me on the team whilst we're in Sussex is

:02:02.:02:05.

Colin Campbell, BBC South East's home affairs correspondent. He's

:02:05.:02:13.

going to set these guys a challenge. Thanks, Dave. I have got my wedding

:02:13.:02:23.

ring. I will see if this lot can find it later in the programme.

:02:23.:02:26.

Right, let's get on with our first appeal of the week. Just down the

:02:26.:02:29.

road from here is the seaside town of Eastbourne where, in February

:02:29.:02:32.

this year, the actions of one careless driver put a life of an

:02:32.:02:39.

unborn child in jeopardy. My son was screaming in the car. I was

:02:39.:02:45.

shaking. I started to cry. I felt a sharp pain. On February 20th, the

:02:45.:02:49.

driver of the Vauxhall Astra was about to put a pregnant women and

:02:49.:02:55.

the life of her unborn baby at risk. It was an exciting time. Fatima was

:02:55.:03:01.

35 weeks pregnant with her second child. It was an exciting time.

:03:01.:03:06.

Harris was looking forward to having a baby brother or sister. He

:03:06.:03:10.

was looking forward to it. He knew that mum was going to go to

:03:10.:03:15.

hospital and come back with a baby. It was time to go home. Fatima put

:03:15.:03:20.

her son in his car seat for the journey. I had been at a friend's

:03:20.:03:27.

house. I had made my way home. I parked outside the house. She could

:03:27.:03:33.

not begin to imagine what was about to happen. At a went to get my son

:03:33.:03:38.

out of the car. It was on the roadside. I went to open the door

:03:38.:03:48.
:03:48.:03:49.

and take my son out. I've just heard a car screaming down the road.

:03:49.:03:54.

Careering down the road, the driver of this ill that Astra slammed into

:03:54.:04:04.
:04:04.:04:07.

the open door. -- the silver Astra. It crashed me into the door frame.

:04:07.:04:17.

I felt a sharp pain in my bump and I screamed out. The car sped off.

:04:17.:04:22.

The driver screeched to a halt further up the road. But the driver

:04:22.:04:27.

was not in the mood to stop. waited for a few moments and then

:04:27.:04:33.

sped off down the road. The driver waited a few seconds, then he drove

:04:33.:04:37.

off into the night, leaving a heavily pregnant woman hat and

:04:37.:04:47.
:04:47.:04:48.

distraught. He left a vital clue. He smashed his wing mirror. A Good

:04:48.:04:54.

Samaritan walking his job rush to help. There was a man at the top of

:04:54.:05:00.

the road walking his dog. He came running back down the road. Luckily

:05:00.:05:04.

the double can notice the wing mirror had been smashed off.

:05:04.:05:10.

moved me to the side of the road. He picked up the wing mirror and

:05:10.:05:15.

put it on the pavement next to me. He was asking me, are you all

:05:15.:05:22.

right? I was in complete shock. My son was screaming in the car. He

:05:22.:05:32.

was frightened. I was shaking and I started to cry. Shall I call for an

:05:32.:05:36.

ambulance? Do not worry. I am completely fine. I could not

:05:36.:05:41.

believe I had been hit by a car and he had not come back of round to

:05:41.:05:48.

see how I was. Fatima convinced that "she was fine and he headed

:05:48.:05:55.

off. Very soon she realised everything was not OK. And went to

:05:55.:06:03.

pick up my son. I felt a sharp pain. I thought, I am not OK. She called

:06:03.:06:09.

her husband to come to her aid. Now all she could do was wait. Over the

:06:09.:06:13.

next few hours, she would have to face the possibility that she might

:06:13.:06:20.

lose her baby. And we'll find out what happened next later in the

:06:20.:06:25.

programme. Now reporting on crime in this area is a major part of my

:06:25.:06:29.

job as home affairs correspondent in the South East. And we've been

:06:29.:06:31.

talking to Chief Constable Martin Richards about the challenges of

Specialist crime team still with more sophisticated, challenging

:07:23.:07:31.

areas of crime. We want to achieve the servants Year of crime

:07:31.:07:36.

reduction, against a backdrop of cuts and challenges we have never

:07:36.:07:44.

faced before. -- 7th year. It has its work cut out. Policing the

:07:44.:07:47.

county is more demanding than ever. A challenging time for forces

:07:47.:07:51.

across the country. So let's give them a hand and help them out by

:07:51.:07:55.

tracking down these Wanted Faces. First up this week is James Hannon.

:07:55.:07:58.

He was charged with an offence of aggravated burglary involving a

:07:58.:08:01.

firearm back in 2003 but failed to appear before Croydon Crown Court.

:08:01.:08:04.

Detectives believe he may now be living in Ireland but he also has

:08:05.:08:07.

connections to the Tonbridge Wells area in Kent. Have you seen him

:08:08.:08:15.

recently? Please let us know where he is. This man, Jelenko Petkovic,

:08:15.:08:21.

uses many different names, He was charged back in the year

:08:21.:08:23.

2000 with violence and firearms offences but didn't turn up in

:08:23.:08:26.

court. He's known to have connections to the Derbyshire,

:08:26.:08:29.

Warwickshire and Staffordshire areas. Now this photo was taken a

:08:29.:08:32.

few years ago, so his appearance may have changed. Do you know where

:08:32.:08:38.

he is? Now let's take a look at this man, Steven Brown. He was

:08:38.:08:41.

arrested in May 2010 on suspicion of breaching a Sexual Offences

:08:41.:08:44.

Prevention Order and was released on police bail but then went

:08:44.:08:47.

missing. He has a noticeable West Country accent and still has

:08:47.:08:53.

connections in the Wiltshire and Bristol areas. And the last one for

:08:53.:08:56.

today is Azwar Abdul Amin. Have you seen him recently? He was convicted

:08:56.:08:59.

in December 2006 of attempted kidnap and actual bodily harm but

:08:59.:09:02.

failed to turn up in court to be sentenced. He is originally from

:09:02.:09:05.

Iraq but is known to have connections to the Blackburn area

:09:05.:09:08.

and is described as being heavily built. Where is he? Please let us

:09:08.:09:12.

know. If you recognise him or any of these faces, the number to call

:09:12.:09:22.

Or text us. Text CW, space, and then your message. And please,

:09:22.:09:25.

leave the space or your message won't get through to us. Or e-mail

:09:25.:09:35.
:09:35.:09:41.

us. Don't forget, all the wanted Now there is nothing more annoying

:09:41.:09:44.

than rushing to pick up the phone only to have someone trying to sell

:09:44.:09:47.

you something, but much worse are those calls from the telephone

:09:47.:09:50.

scammers who just want to steal your money. Here is what happened

:09:50.:10:00.
:10:00.:10:12.

Oh, it is you again. My dad does not deserve this. I do not know how

:10:12.:10:21.

anybody can do this to someone like my father. You want �200 to release

:10:21.:10:26.

my money? It is not until the victims are aware they are being

:10:26.:10:29.

scanned that the scam has rarely show their true colours and start

:10:29.:10:39.

to become nasty. Since the Roy Watkins retired, he has led a quiet

:10:39.:10:45.

life in Chichester. In the year 11 Macro, his world was turned upside

:10:45.:10:55.
:10:55.:11:02.

down. -- in 2000 -- in 2011, his They wanted �200 from an account

:11:02.:11:12.

from a cash voucher to get money released. Hello. I am calling from

:11:12.:11:17.

the Ministry of Justice. The people on the phone claimed they had

:11:17.:11:23.

�5,000 for Roy in overpaid bank charges. In order to get that money,

:11:23.:11:31.

they were it -- he would have to pay �200 admin fee. I thought the

:11:31.:11:36.

money would be very useful and I could help Elizabeth, who is going

:11:36.:11:42.

through a rough patch. The man on the phone told him to pay the money

:11:42.:11:48.

using Ukash vouchers. They are widely available in shops across

:11:48.:11:52.

the UK. They can be cashed by anyone knowing the unique number

:11:52.:11:59.

printed on each one. The beauty of them is they have virtually

:11:59.:12:04.

untraceable. He rang to see if I had got the voucher. I told him I

:12:04.:12:08.

had. He said, can you give me the number of it? That means giving the

:12:08.:12:15.

money to him, doesn't it? Having got their money, they came back for

:12:15.:12:25.

more. The following day he rang up a game. He wanted further money. It

:12:25.:12:30.

amounted to �250. -- again. This time they asked him to pay through

:12:30.:12:34.

Western Union. His local outlet was suspicious but he was keen to help

:12:35.:12:41.

his daughter, so he took a taxi to the brunch in Bognor Regis. The �20

:12:42.:12:51.

taxi ride was something a pensioner like Roy and hard. He tried to

:12:51.:12:57.

cover up the extent of his spending from his own family. My dad was

:12:57.:13:00.

hard-working and worked all his life. He had the biggest heart of

:13:00.:13:06.

anyone I have ever met. He does not deserve this to happen to him at

:13:06.:13:12.

all. It had a profound effect on him. He became a stranger. I did

:13:12.:13:19.

not know him. By now, they had been calling Roy for every day for

:13:19.:13:25.

months. Finally he realised he was never going to get his �5,000.

:13:25.:13:31.

was desperate. I rang the police. They advised me not to hand over

:13:31.:13:37.

any more money because it was a scam. I had realised it was by that

:13:37.:13:41.

time. We carried out an investigation. After a few weeks,

:13:41.:13:45.

we established the ministry of justice were not making these phone

:13:45.:13:53.

calls and they were scanners who are contacting victims. I did say,

:13:54.:13:59.

when he phoned again, there was no more money. If I had got any, I was

:13:59.:14:05.

keeping it in my pocket and he could go away. He did not like that.

:14:05.:14:09.

He got abusive and called me everything under the sun and I put

:14:09.:14:15.

the phone turned on him in the end. I have not heard from him since.

:14:15.:14:21.

simply do not know how much money Roy has lost. His family think, it

:14:21.:14:26.

could be thousands. From the paperwork that Mr Watkins has given

:14:26.:14:32.

us, we can see from just one month he has paid out �600 to them. This

:14:32.:14:39.

is just the tip of the iceberg. He probably has paid out in the region

:14:39.:14:45.

of �3,000. They do not realise what a profound effect - not that they

:14:45.:14:53.

care - but they do not realise what effect it has on people, not only

:14:53.:14:56.

food they are doing this crime against, but the fact they're

:14:57.:15:06.
:15:07.:15:07.

destroying families. -- who they Seeing somebody like Roy being

:15:07.:15:14.

taken advantage of like that makes us all angry. I am now joined by

:15:14.:15:18.

Tom Clack. You have a range of scam letters that have been sent to

:15:18.:15:26.

people. This was sent by somebody who calls themselves Stella

:15:26.:15:36.
:15:36.:15:36.

Enginestone. -- Angelstone. They say that all you have to do to get

:15:36.:15:40.

the money in the next few days is send and �40. This is typical of

:15:40.:15:47.

what you see on a daily basis? much so. Unfortunately, the bank

:15:47.:15:51.

charges can that Roy became a victim of his very common. And

:15:52.:15:55.

payment protection scams that require Ukash vouchers for the

:15:55.:16:00.

payments to be made. Tell us about these vouchers, because these are

:16:00.:16:04.

legitimate, but it is just that some were using them as a scam?

:16:04.:16:10.

Absolutely. A Ukash voucher is a totally legitimate way to make a

:16:10.:16:14.

payment online. Unfortunately, criminals have been using them to

:16:14.:16:20.

trick people into making payments to them. With Ukash, the clue is in

:16:20.:16:26.

the name. People should treat it like cash. We saw in the film that

:16:26.:16:30.

Roy's daughter did not know what was going on. It is there any

:16:30.:16:34.

advice you could give to family members are worried that an elderly

:16:34.:16:38.

relative or somebody vulnerable is being scammed? If it is difficult

:16:38.:16:43.

because they will encourage their victims to keep things secret for

:16:43.:16:48.

obvious reasons. But family members can be vigilant. Is that person

:16:48.:16:52.

receiving a lot of phone calls from strangers? Are the receiving a lot

:16:52.:16:57.

of junk mail? And if somebody is being uncharacteristically guarded

:16:57.:17:03.

about their finances or telephone calls they are receiving. All of

:17:03.:17:07.

this vital signs, and it is typical that these scammers do not send one

:17:07.:17:13.

letter. So keep an eye out for your relatives. There is this term I

:17:13.:17:20.

know you do not like and we call it the "sucker list". I don't like

:17:20.:17:24.

that because of what it applies about the victims, but essentially

:17:24.:17:30.

it is a target list. If you respond to a scam, you will be put on a

:17:30.:17:35.

target list and that will be shared with like minded criminals. So that

:17:35.:17:40.

victim could find themselves being repeatedly targeted. Says somebody

:17:40.:17:43.

gets a letter they are not too sure about and it sounds too good to be

:17:43.:17:48.

true. What should they do? I would encourage anybody who thinks they

:17:48.:17:52.

have been a victim of a scammed or is not sure about something they

:17:52.:17:55.

have received to contact their local Trading Standards department

:17:55.:17:59.

we can help them from there. you can help them and they will not

:17:59.:18:05.

get into trouble if they have not done anything wrong?

:18:05.:18:10.

Next up, it is time for our first batch of crooks caught on CCTV.

:18:11.:18:15.

A service station in Aldershot, Hampshire, in February this year.

:18:15.:18:18.

They break in and head straight for the cigarettes. They managed to

:18:18.:18:24.

take them quickly and put them in a sheet. Getting out proves more

:18:24.:18:29.

challenging. They take more than �10,000 worth of cigarettes. Police

:18:29.:18:33.

need to smoke these thieves out. If you recognise them, you know what

:18:33.:18:39.

to do. A phone shop in Kilburn High Road,

:18:39.:18:44.

London. This man wants a new mobile and checks out the new �300 Sony

:18:44.:18:49.

Eriksson. He takes his time, checking that is the model he wants.

:18:49.:18:58.

Hmm, he is not Shaw. Actually, what he has been doing is detaching the

:18:58.:19:04.

phone. He takes it off that display and casually use the shop. If you

:19:04.:19:12.

recognise him, don't be laid back about getting in touch.

:19:12.:19:17.

The last one for now - it is 29th February this year and this bloke

:19:17.:19:22.

is making the most of the extra leap year day. He drops into a shop

:19:22.:19:27.

in Richmond, Surrey. He asks to see an expensive watch and goes away

:19:27.:19:32.

without buying anything. But the next day he is back and wants to

:19:32.:19:37.

see the �5,000 watch it again, and this time, he grabs it and runs. If

:19:37.:19:44.

you recognise this crook, call time on him.

:19:44.:19:49.

So, recognise anyone? If so, get in touch. Plenty more to come on the

:19:49.:19:53.

programme. A pregnant woman fears for her

:19:53.:19:59.

unborn child after a hit-and-run. And the tough police divers are

:19:59.:20:05.

trained to search in the most challenging conditions.

:20:05.:20:09.

Remember, I was going to hide my wedding ring and it is now well and

:20:09.:20:14.

truly hidden in this area. Behind me you can see a fine fingertip

:20:14.:20:19.

search is underway. These guys of from the Specialist Search Unit and

:20:19.:20:24.

I have recently joined them on an underwater training session.

:20:24.:20:28.

Despite research unit arrives at Shoreham Harbour, 10 miles west of

:20:28.:20:33.

Brighton. It is a regular visit. For the unit, training here is

:20:33.:20:38.

crucial. Today, the team is practising underwater search

:20:38.:20:41.

techniques so when the real call comes in, they will be fully

:20:41.:20:45.

prepared. The team is made up of eight divers who regularly search

:20:45.:20:54.

for missing people and evidence. They are on call 247. The purpose

:20:54.:20:59.

of these training exercises is to keep us on our toes and heighten

:20:59.:21:06.

our skills. Most of the time, the team is asked to set rivers and

:21:06.:21:09.

ponds but they trained here in the harbour so they can be ready for

:21:09.:21:17.

the most difficult of dives. have got the depth, the lack of

:21:17.:21:20.

visibility, you are along the bottom and you cannot feel because

:21:20.:21:25.

you are wearing gloves, and she was kicking up or of the silt, so

:21:25.:21:33.

visibility is reduced to zero. -- you are kicking up all the silt.

:21:33.:21:40.

Let's see how long it takes them to find this. Here goes. Michelle will

:21:40.:21:47.

be searching for the knife. A gun is thrown in, too, and Rick will

:21:47.:21:54.

look for that. We are using one of the 12 diving techniques. Ago I

:21:54.:21:57.

will go along the bottom with a line and search as he goes along

:21:57.:22:05.

the line. -- a guy will go along the line. How difficult will it be?

:22:05.:22:11.

Very difficult. He will not be able to see very much. Visibility is

:22:11.:22:17.

around zero. The divers are able to keep in constant contact with the

:22:17.:22:27.
:22:27.:22:34.

surface. Have you spotted the knife It takes Michelle just 20 minutes

:22:34.:22:42.

to find the knife. She is used to difficult conditions. Roger!

:22:42.:22:49.

Sometimes we have to go out in snow wee, icy conditions, where it is

:22:50.:22:57.

minus three outside. -- snowy conditions. Getting kitted out and

:22:57.:23:01.

going to the river is horrendous enough. Torrential rain and quite

:23:01.:23:06.

often I would prefer to be in the water because it is warmer! And a

:23:07.:23:12.

few minutes later, which comes up to the surface with the gun. --

:23:12.:23:17.

grip. That was obviously a training exercise. How does that compare to

:23:17.:23:23.

the real thing? That training exercise, if we miss it, we go out

:23:23.:23:29.

later on and maybe find it again. But on a live exercise, you have to

:23:29.:23:34.

find it. That is why we are here. But all too often, the team face an

:23:34.:23:38.

even more difficult challenge - searching for a body. In a case

:23:38.:23:42.

when you have a body and it has gone missing and you have to go

:23:42.:23:45.

into the water to retrieve the body, bringing the body back to the

:23:45.:23:51.

family, that is extremely important. Very sensitive. With young children,

:23:51.:23:56.

it is very tough. Everybody is very sober about it all. Normally that

:23:56.:24:01.

means the family is quite close by. The idea is to bring a successful

:24:01.:24:05.

conclusion to the case, either to bring closure to the family's or if

:24:05.:24:09.

the case is an investigation, a criminal investigation, to provide

:24:09.:24:19.
:24:19.:24:20.

and recover evidence that cannot be recovered by any other means.

:24:20.:24:25.

in 2008, the team's skills were tested to the limit by the

:24:25.:24:30.

disappearance of this woman. We had to search places like the cesspit

:24:30.:24:36.

of the House concerned. There was a number of deep wells on the forest

:24:36.:24:40.

we had to make sure there was nothing in them. The search team

:24:40.:24:45.

moved on to search by an's home and discovered two key pieces of

:24:45.:24:51.

evidence. -- Diane's home. They found a bloodstained watch and ring.

:24:51.:24:55.

The police they knew they were hunting the killer and the make-up

:24:55.:24:59.

artist's husband was convicted of her murder. The work of the

:24:59.:25:04.

Specialist Search Unit was integral and essential to this investigation.

:25:04.:25:08.

The skills and expertise they bring to an investigation is very

:25:08.:25:13.

reassuring -- are very reassuring to a senior officer. The evidence

:25:13.:25:18.

they found on this occasion was significant in the arrest. It is

:25:18.:25:23.

rewarded when you find something that is relevant to an

:25:23.:25:27.

investigation. -- it is rewarding. It is a good feeling that you have

:25:27.:25:33.

actually found the item they are looking for. Here on dry land, the

:25:33.:25:38.

search for Colin's wedding ring continues. My camera manos where

:25:38.:25:44.

the ring is and I know as well. We can show you here. But they don't.

:25:44.:25:49.

They have got to find it. I am joined by Darren. Is what we are

:25:49.:25:54.

seeing here typical? Yes. The officers are advancing forward on

:25:54.:25:59.

their knees and using their fingers to search. It is what we call a

:25:59.:26:05.

systematic fingertip search. cover all of the ground? Yes.

:26:05.:26:10.

do the white markers signify? show the area the officers have

:26:10.:26:13.

already searched, so we know that when we move on, an area has been

:26:13.:26:19.

covered so we can move into a new area. It is painstaking work and if

:26:19.:26:25.

we just go down here but now I will have a word with one of these

:26:25.:26:29.

people. We saw your film in your diving gear and you are now on the

:26:29.:26:34.

ground. How long would you carry out a search for? Typically 45

:26:34.:26:40.

minutes to and hour. It is also dependent on the weather, if it is

:26:40.:26:47.

too pot, cold. Does your mind sometimes become a haze? It can do,

:26:47.:26:52.

and that is why it is essential to take breaks. It must take its toll

:26:52.:26:57.

on your knees and back? Yes, you get sore unease at the end of the

:26:57.:27:03.

day. I will refuse to it, because the search for the wedding -- I

:27:04.:27:06.

will leave you to it because the search for the wedding ring

:27:07.:27:15.

continues. And you have used this previously? Yes. We have to search

:27:15.:27:19.

a rural area before after an incident that had taken place and

:27:19.:27:24.

we were looking for an knife. During the search, as the officers

:27:24.:27:30.

went forward, we found the knife. Hidden in the undergrowth? And then

:27:30.:27:36.

they can get evidence from DNA, so your work is crucial? Absolutely.

:27:37.:27:40.

Back-breaking but enjoyable? Yes. It is a lovely feeling when you

:27:40.:27:44.

find something, especially when it is vital evidence to something that

:27:44.:27:50.

has taken place. Thank you very much. Back to Colin.

:27:50.:27:53.

Back to the shocking hit-and-run that left an expectant mother

:27:53.:28:00.

frightened for her baby's life. On February 20th this year, the

:28:00.:28:05.

driver of a silver Astra slammed into the side door of Fatimah's car,

:28:05.:28:11.

crushing her and her unborn child. The driver sped off, leading

:28:12.:28:16.

Fatimah in terrible pain. She phoned her husband for help. --

:28:16.:28:24.

leaving Fatimah. I said, I have just been hit by a car, can you

:28:24.:28:29.

come quickly? And I started to have a lot of pain. My son was screaming

:28:29.:28:32.

and I was panicking and I was thinking, I have got to get to

:28:32.:28:37.

hospital. Within minutes, her husband arrived. As soon as he came

:28:37.:28:41.

and opened the door, I started crying again. Concerned for his

:28:41.:28:45.

wife and unborn baby, he took them straight to hospital at Eastbourne.

:28:45.:28:50.

I was sitting in the back of a car and my husband, I think he was

:28:50.:28:55.

really worried. We are nearly there, hold on! Because I could not feel

:28:55.:28:59.

any movement. I could feel pain and you wonder how much of that

:28:59.:29:03.

impacted the baby. Did it hit the baby's head? Not knowing what might

:29:03.:29:07.

be wrong and might happen now because of this. Her husband took

:29:07.:29:11.

her straight up to the local hospital. She was in the maternity

:29:11.:29:14.

department in Eastbourne and she was having some monitors placed on

:29:15.:29:20.

her to make sure she was a crate and the baby was OK. -- she was OK.

:29:20.:29:24.

But the doctors became increasingly concerned. They said the heartbeat

:29:24.:29:28.

was fine but I was having contractions and they were coming

:29:28.:29:32.

quite regularly. They gave me a steroid injection, which helps to

:29:32.:29:37.

mature the baby's lungs in case it had difficulty breathing. And I was

:29:37.:29:41.

panicking thinking, I am not ready to have this baby. Fatimah was in

:29:41.:29:46.

and out of hospital for the next four Day is having tests, and when

:29:46.:29:49.

she started having just pains, doctors were worried this could

:29:49.:29:54.

indicate a blood clot. Police were trying to look for the silver Astra.

:29:54.:29:57.

I think the driver of the other car involved would have known what

:29:57.:30:02.

happened that day. In any situation, you think, who would hit somebody

:30:03.:30:07.

and knowingly take off? There is no doubt they could not know they hit

:30:07.:30:17.
:30:17.:30:18.

This could have been more serious. There could have been a greater

:30:18.:30:25.

injury to her or her unborn child. I could have been hit directly by

:30:25.:30:31.

the car. I could have been holding my son and he could have been hurt.

:30:31.:30:38.

Despite the trauma, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Layla was

:30:39.:30:44.

born on 14th May. She was born completely normal delivery and

:30:44.:30:50.

everything went really well. Bit of such a shame. I had had such a good

:30:50.:30:55.

pregnancy and it was all remained at the last minute. The last period

:30:55.:31:00.

was so stressful for me. Well, fortunately, this story does have a

:31:00.:31:09.

happy ending and Fatimah joins us now with baby Layla. Is she always

:31:09.:31:15.

back good? 13 weeks. All is well now but you must have had a real

:31:15.:31:21.

worry in hospital after that incident. It was traumatic. I was

:31:21.:31:27.

in and out of hospital. It was ready difficult. You're saying your

:31:27.:31:34.

pregnancy had been an event full up until that point? Yes, really an

:31:34.:31:41.

event full. What do you think about someone who could do that and drive

:31:41.:31:49.

off? Shocking. I screamed out. It is appalling. What do you say to

:31:49.:31:55.

anyone who might know who this person is? Please come forward and

:31:55.:32:01.

give information. Describe your relief when she was born and all

:32:01.:32:06.

was well. It was a massive relief and a lovely surprise because we

:32:06.:32:13.

did not know we were having a girl. You're too year-old son was also in

:32:13.:32:19.

the car. Has he been affected in any way? It was difficult at the

:32:19.:32:25.

time. He is young enough not to have remembered anything. He is

:32:25.:32:31.

still oblivious to everything. PC Richard Hobbs, we saw you in that

:32:31.:32:37.

film. How can our beers helped to track down this driver? From the

:32:37.:32:43.

wing mirror, we know we're looking for a silver box will Astra. There

:32:43.:32:50.

will be a broken passenger side wing mirror. -- Foxall. When did it

:32:50.:32:58.

happen? Around 6:00pm. description of the driver? We do

:32:58.:33:05.

not have that. I will be looking at three offences. The first is

:33:05.:33:09.

driving without due care and attention, per-second for failing

:33:09.:33:18.

to stop and the third failing to report the crash to us. If you want

:33:18.:33:28.
:33:28.:33:28.

to remain anonymous, Buchan. Call us on: -- you can. Your calls on

:33:28.:33:36.

Friday it led directly to an arrest. We showed you the photo of this man.

:33:36.:33:40.

Within just two hours of the programme, Cambridgeshire Police

:33:40.:33:46.

arrested and later charged him with three counts of fraud. He pleaded

:33:46.:33:52.

guilty on Saturday and is being remanded in custody. He has been

:33:52.:33:57.

arrested by another police force over similar offences. Thank you.

:33:57.:34:02.

Your calls provided that vital piece of information. Police are

:34:02.:34:09.

following up a strong line of inquiry after repeated a robbery in

:34:09.:34:14.

Merseyside. Staff were threatened before the robbers escaped. We have

:34:14.:34:20.

had lots of you giving as good information after week featured on

:34:20.:34:28.

Friday the theft of diggers from a yard. -- we featured. Your calls

:34:28.:34:34.

really do make a difference. Back to Colin. You must be a bit

:34:34.:34:40.

nervous? I am now back with the specialist search unit who have

:34:40.:34:45.

been searching for my wedding ring. Will I be in trouble with the wife

:34:45.:34:52.

or not? It's have a word with PC Darren Middleton. Am I going to get

:34:52.:35:01.

my ring back? I am not too sure. Have you found it? There you go.

:35:02.:35:09.

The wedding ring. Back on my finger. How easy was it to find? It was

:35:09.:35:14.

pretty easy to find that we had to go through our procedures. We

:35:14.:35:20.

managed to locate the item. The sun is out. It is not always like this.

:35:20.:35:28.

Tell us about some of the conditions? We do underwater search,

:35:28.:35:34.

where visibility is widely produced. Research at heights and use robes.

:35:34.:35:43.

You need to have a bit of a head for heights. Also in the confined

:35:43.:35:49.

area and water-borne operations on boats. How do you cope with those

:35:49.:35:57.

conditions? We train barony, like we are doing today. We where the

:35:57.:36:03.

appropriate equipment was dubbed Ashes thoroughly. Is there

:36:03.:36:11.

something special about you guys? - - equipment. -- barony. We all love

:36:11.:36:17.

our job. To do this sort of work you need full concentration all the

:36:17.:36:22.

time and need to be disciplined in what you're doing. You need to be

:36:22.:36:29.

fit as well. Thank you very much. Thank you for finding mine ring.

:36:29.:36:35.

Back to Rav. If there is a needle in a haystack, they would find it.

:36:35.:36:41.

Take a look at this CCTV. November last year in Carphone Warehouse in

:36:42.:36:47.

Wandsworth in London. A man walks in, takes a good look around, he

:36:47.:36:54.

takes a fancy to an iPad, grabs it and makes for the door. Do not let

:36:54.:37:03.

him get away with it! Boots in Cosham, Hampshire, February of this

:37:03.:37:09.

year. This is man is only in the store for a minute. He takes some

:37:09.:37:15.

high-end products off the shelf and puts them in his bag. He got away

:37:15.:37:21.

with over �1,000 worth of cosmetics. Some beauty regime! If you know him,

:37:21.:37:30.

let us know. Next, August last year, and these two picked up at the

:37:30.:37:38.

Milton Keynes branch of Ikea. The store is closed. These two tried to

:37:38.:37:44.

cover up while they pull the CCTV off the wall. They give us the

:37:44.:37:50.

great look at one of them. Next day, up more than 77 Grand was missing

:37:50.:37:56.

from the safe. Ikea is offering a reward of up to �5,000 for

:37:56.:38:01.

information leading up to rape conviction. If you recognise them,

:38:01.:38:10.

give us a call. -- a conviction. If you have any information, give us a

:38:10.:38:20.
:38:20.:38:32.

You can e-mail us: Back to comment in Sussex. -- Colin. What about the

:38:32.:38:40.

low level crimes that annoy all of us? Here it is being tackled by an

:38:40.:38:46.

innovative approach. You organise street meetings. How do you go

:38:46.:38:52.

about it? We put letters through doors of residents. We get them to

:38:52.:38:58.

come down and speak to us. What are they concerned about? Normally the

:38:58.:39:04.

low-level stuff like speeding, also parking problems. You have made a

:39:04.:39:10.

complaint. What is it? There is a bridleway at the top of our road

:39:10.:39:17.

which is by way. It is used by horse-riders, cyclists and

:39:17.:39:21.

pedestrians. There is an ever- increasing number of motorcycles

:39:21.:39:28.

and 4x4 vehicles. How will you do with it? We make sure we turn up at

:39:28.:39:36.

times when it is happening. Tony is a satisfied customer. What have the

:39:36.:39:43.

police than for you? A camper van appeared on the cricket field. We

:39:43.:39:49.

said, have we think we have travellers moving into the airier.

:39:49.:39:55.

They had moved around to the south side of the cricket field. Kelly

:39:55.:39:59.

came and sorted it out. Smoothed out the ruffled feathers, wiped

:39:59.:40:06.

away the tears and everyone was happy. This will become a crucial

:40:06.:40:12.

part of policing in Sussex. I am joined by Chief Inspector Dick

:40:12.:40:16.

Coates, the commander. Is it actually succeeding in cutting

:40:16.:40:23.

crime? It is. Over the last five years crime has been reduced to a

:40:23.:40:28.

year on year. There has been a 77% reduction this year alone. It has

:40:28.:40:33.

to be along the lines of putting out bobbies on the beat and having

:40:33.:40:37.

a high-profile presence. It is about listening to community

:40:37.:40:41.

concerns and doing something pretty to allay those fears and those

:40:41.:40:46.

issues. Of course there are lots of people calling on your time. Could

:40:46.:40:51.

you raise false hopes? We could get in touch and have the street

:40:52.:40:56.

meeting. We have to prioritise what we do, that is correct. We have

:40:56.:41:01.

time to speak to people and listen to their concerns and put things

:41:01.:41:04.

impact is a make things better for communities. It is about keeping

:41:04.:41:12.

them safe and secure art in their environment. We are listening to

:41:12.:41:16.

our community and doing what they want. This is against the

:41:16.:41:20.

background of cuts. A number of forces are cutting back on

:41:20.:41:24.

community initiatives. The chief constable has been clear that

:41:24.:41:28.

neighbourhood policing is the bedrock of everything we do. We

:41:28.:41:33.

need to get into communities and do what they want us to do. It is

:41:33.:41:38.

about being face-to-face and not just whizzing past in patrol cars?

:41:38.:41:42.

Let's get back into communities and find out what is going on and do

:41:42.:41:48.

something positive. Thank you very much indeed. He says this is the

:41:48.:41:54.

way forward, may be for the rest of the country as well. Just the quick

:41:54.:41:59.

update of what has been coming in on the phones, texts and e-mails.

:41:59.:42:07.

Some good information on one face. He is wanted on suspicion breaching

:42:07.:42:13.

the sexual offences order. We are getting a lot of calls from viewers

:42:13.:42:23.
:42:23.:42:23.

who think they have been victims of scam ors. That is about it from me

:42:23.:42:29.

today. What are you have to tomorrow? We have loads in the

:42:29.:42:34.

programme tomorrow. They are going to the police headquarters in

:42:34.:42:43.

Sussex at Louis. I will be with the anti-terrorist police at Gatwick

:42:43.:42:49.

Airport. -- Lewes. Tomorrow we are under cover for some of the day.

:42:49.:42:55.

Back to you, Rav. For more details about the crimes on today's

:42:55.:43:04.

Rav Wilding in Cardiff and Dave Guest in Sussex appeal for help with unsolved cases. In this episode, Sussex police search for the hit-and-run driver who left a heavily pregnant woman in danger of losing her baby. The team visit the village of Alfriston in East Sussex to find out how the Sussex force respond to local people's concerns, and local reporter Colin Campbell joins the county's Specialist Search Unit as they dive in Shoreham Harbour.
