A man has ap­peared in court af­ter three peo­ple were in­jured in an al­leged as­sault at a busy Peter­bor­ough su­per­mar­ket. Po­lice were called at 10.45am on Mon­day, Jan­uary 9, to re­ports of vi­o­lence at Mor­risons in Lin­coln Road, Peter­bor­ough.

A num­ber of po­lice cars and am­bu­lances were spot­ted out­side the Wal­ton store fol­low­ing the re­ports.

A Cam­bridgeshire po­lice spokesman said: “Three peo­ple were as­saulted as a re­sult of the in­ci­dent.”

It is thought­both­shop­pers and staff were in­jured in the in­ci­dent.

Four peo­ple had to re­ceive med­i­cal at­ten­tion from para- medics at the scene.

The Cam­bridgeshire po­lice spokesman said Mar­ian Car­cel, (37), of no known ad- dress, has been charged with two counts of as­sault by beat­ing and one count of caus­ing ac­tual bod­ily harm (ABH).

A spokesman for Mor­risons said they were work­ing with po­lice fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent. He said: “Our stores should be safe and wel­com­ing places to work and shop.

A spokesman for the East of Eng­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice said they treated four peo­ple at the scene, al­though no-one needed to be taken to hos­pi­tal for any fur­ther treat­ment. A num­ber of pigs had to be put down af­ter a lorry car­ry­ing­dozen­soft­hean­i­mals over­turned.

The lorry, which was tak­ing about 180 pigs to an abat­toir in Spald­ing, was in­volved in a col­li­sion on the A16 at Cow­bit at about 11am yes­ter­day.

A spokesman for Lin­colnshire po­lice said a vet was called to the scene to check on the an­i­mals’ wel­fare.

How­ever, 20 an­i­mals had to be put down as a re­sult of the ac­ci­dent.

The road was closed for a num­ber of hours while in­ves­ti­ga­tions took place and emer­gency ser­vices worked at the scene.

It is thought high winds may have con­trib­uted to the crash, al­though ac­ci­dentin­ves­ti­ga­tions are still on­go­ing.
