Motorcyclist dies following Warsop collision Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a man died following a serious collision on Peafield Lane, Warsop on Saturday. Police were called at around 3.20pm following the single-vehicle collision which involved a motorcycle. The motorcyclist - a man in his forties - died following the collision. Detective Sergeant Ash Thornton from Nottinghamshire Police said: "We are appealing for any witnesses or drivers with dashcam fitted to their vehicles who were in the area at the time of the collision to come forward. “In addition we are keen to speak to the occupants of a black or grey Range Rover-type vehicle that we believe was travelling along Peafield Lane towards Clipstone around the time of the collision. "We believe the occupants of this vehicle may have seen the motorcycle involved in the moments before the collision and would ask them to make contact with officers as soon as possible. "If you witnessed the collision, please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101. Any information - no matter how insignificant it may seem - could make the difference." Anyone with any information is asked to Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 548 of 11 March.
Proper Use of 999 The Police Contact Management department continue to spread awareness on social media to encourage the general public to use the correct numbers when phoning the Force and not to waste police time. Here are some examples of calls to 999 that have been uploaded recently to Facebook. "Can you ring my boyfriend for me? I need a lift home and I can't remember his number." "My son won't stop playing on his computer and it's his bedtime. I'm worried he might not get up for school on time." "My boiler is broke. I want the police to attend my house to fix it." "People are setting off fireworks and it's been going off for about 45 minutes but it's stopped now." "The green man isn't working on the traffic lights." "I've locked myself out. I can't get into my house as my key is inside." "I bought an e-cigarette from my local shop and it's not working, but they won't give me a refund even though I've got a receipt." "My phone has locked, so can the police contact the provider to unlock it?" "Bouncers have chucked me out the nightclub for no reason." "The dry cleaners haven't cleaned my curtains." The message is clear, by not calling the Force for non-policing issues, it allows us to be there when people really do need us.
