A QUIET residential street was recovering from a dramatic day that saw 999 crews rush to their west Swindon neighbourhood.

Police were called to Corfe Road at around 4pm on Saturday afternoon over what detectives branded a “disorder”.

The Adver understands that two young men were involved in a fight on the Toothill road. One attempted to drive off but was prevented by the other man – causing the car to smash into a parked BMW. Glass debris from broken beer bottles could be seen left strewn on the road.

One woman was left with minor injuries and was treated at the scene by paramedics, police said.

The street was sealed off by officers for several hours into Saturday evening, with a police cordon surrounding one Corfe Road home until around 9.30pm.

A wooden security panel had been fitted to the front door of the house.

Several fire crews were called to the street by Wiltshire Police, including an HGV support unit from Swindon’s Drove Road fire station. Police officers at the scene said that Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service had been called as a precaution – and there was no risk to the public.

Specialist officers from the Tri-Force police unit returned to the street yesterday afternoon, although the reason for their presence was unclear.

Residents on Corfe Road and neighbouring Westminster Road were left surprised at the heavy emergency services presence.

One woman, who did not want to give her name, said: “People don’t feel safe.”

Another, 41, watching officers at the police crime scene tape, said: “It’s a quiet area. I have lived here for about 12 years and the only fire engines you see are for the old people’s home - nothing like this.”

A man on nearby Westminster Road said of the police presence: “It’s quite strange. We’ve just moved in on Friday. It’s not a good sign.”

One woman, 58, said: “It’s quiet here. I’ve lived here for 20 years. We’ll take it in our stride – as long as it doesn’t keep happening.”

No arrests have been made and on Saturday night detectives issued an appeal for witnesses.

Acting Det Sgt Stephanie England said: “We believe there were several people in Corfe Road at the time of the incident and shortly after and we would like to hear from them. We would also like to reassure the local community that there is no wider risk to members of the public.”
