Officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with relevant dashcam footage to come forward following a report of a fail-to-stop road traffic collision in Bridport.

It was reported that at around 8.30am on Sunday 3 March 2024 a collision occurred in East Street, near to the Natwest bank, involving a pedestrian and a white Ford Transit van, which had been parked at the side of the road and was reversing.

The pedestrian, a woman aged in her 70s, reportedly fell to the ground and sustained a graze to her elbow. She did not require hospital treatment.

It was reported that the van involved did not stop at the scene.

Police Constable Maddie Barber, of Dorset Police, said: “We are investigating this incident and from our enquiries I understand there were a number of people in the area around the time of the collision.

“I would urge any witnesses who have not already spoken to police to please make contact with us.

“I am also keen to hear from any motorists who were driving in the vicinity and may have captured relevant dashcam footage.

“Finally, I would urge the driver of the van involved to do the right thing and please come forward so we can take your account.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55240032730. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
