Police are appealing for witnesses after two crashes in Northumberland.

At 12.07pm on Sunday, September 29, police received a report that a man in a black Fiesta had been seen driving erratically in the Warkworth beach car park area.

The car then collided with a hedge at the car park before leaving the scene.

Then at 12.54pm officers received a report that a black Fiesta had been involved in a minor collision with a Volvo in Bede Street in Amble.

The driver of the Volvo got out of his car to exchange details with the other driver when the Fiesta collided with him and left the scene.

Officers responded and found the Fiesta in Amble.

A 20-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop after an accident and drink-driving. He has been bailed pending further enquiries.

The driver of the Volvo was taken to Wansbeck Hospital with a leg injury and has since been released.

Motor Patrols officers are carrying out inquiries into both collisions and want to speak to anyone who might have seen a black Fiesta in the Warkworth area around noon on Sunday, or anyone who might have seen the car in Amble between noon and 1.30pm.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
