I've just attached a link about the article referring to the incident at Llandudno Hospital and wonder if the Police did manage to track the hit and run driver down.     If the mother from Northampton took only 6 hours to locate the CCTV then the North Wales Police Force with all their resources available to them could have done it in half that time

We are talking about NWP here, the cameras outside the hospital would have picked it up, a few blind spots round the back but clear at the front.

It is reasonable to expect a security camera monitoring the main hospital entrance.

In that case Norman, why didn't the North Wales Police not find out who the driver was?     They had the exact time, date and place of the incident, a description of the woman and her car and the chances are that she was a local person visiting a friend or relative in the hospital.
It was not the hardest crime to solve.       &shake&

I drove along the prom at Rhos On Sea earlier and by the Beach Cafe in Penrhyn Bay there was an Arrive Alive speed camera van parked in the lay by

I watched a very tatty Ford Gray Mondeo towing an equally tatty Caravan park across the road from mine this morning. The driver unhitched and drove off leaving the Van before I could get his registration. However there was a plate on the Van that came back as a Gray Mondeo with an expired MOT since January 2019. Quick call to 101 and gave them the details. After an hour or so a Gray Mondeo turned up again, Hitch up and tried to pull off. Unfortunately the man had some sort of Mechanical problem because he stopped halfway out of his parking slot and had to call the RAC. A quick check on this Mondeo came back as Untaxed since 17 October 2017 and MOT expired since 3 February 2018 and the registrations didn't match up. Another call to 101 and after a whee while two large Police officers turned up to help sort out his accumulating motoring problems.

As the Police drove off they only got a hundred yards down the road when the Blue Lights came on as another chancer came speeding out of the bottom end of Church Walks; the wrong way. Who said easing the lockdown was going to be easy?  ))*

I'm pleased that your phone call to 101 produced a good result because there are too many motorists on the road that don't abide by the rules and honest motorists have to subsidize those cheats.
My own dealings with the 101 service were not a very good experience
The first time I reported someone for driving with a MOT that had expired was because they were texting at the same time and driving in the middle of the road with a car following it.     The operator said that unless I had a photo of the driver texting there was nothing they could do as I had no evidence.   So I replied by saying that you have the evidence on the DVLA data base so what as you going to do about the expired MOT.
The operator consulted her supervisor and came back and said " unless the MOT is three months or more out of date then we are not interested"       Unbelievable!
The second time I phoned 101  I reported three vehicles that had no tax, one of which has no tax, MOT or insurance and belonged to the same person.     She asked me where the cars are parked and I said in the person's garden and the answer I got was that " the Police have no powers to do anything when the cars are parked in someone's garden"    ( no SORN on any of the vehicles "
What can one do in the circumstances, we know that the DVLA is useless and the Police can't or won't act so the fraud is allowed to continue

There seems to be an increasing number of these incidents occurring all over the UK and perhaps "Harvey's Law" should be introduced as soon as possible to protect the emergency workers from these sick elements of society

I agree, there should be a mandatory penalty for any violence towards any emergency worker.
