Unsolved crimes are to be featured on the BBC’s Crimewatch Roadshow programme today (Friday).
The Crimewatch Roadshow runs from Monday 12 June to Friday 7 July and is shown at 9.15am each weekday on BBC1. The programme focuses on unsolved crimes from different regions of the country and follows a similar format to the evening Crimewatch programme in terms of an appeal for new information.
Over the past month, we have been working with the BBC to help them recreate reconstructions of the incidents and provide them with interviews with the investigating officers as well as investigative material such as police body worn video footage and CCTV images.
The cases they are featuring are a non-stop road traffic collision in Thurmaston leaving a pedestrian seriously injured and a knife point robbery in the city centre.
Detective Chief Inspector Chris Baker, the senior investigating officer for the Thurmaston incident, said: “We are grateful to the BBC for featuring these cases on their programme.
“The show has a good success rate in bringing new information in about crimes and I hope that anyone who watches the programme and thinks they can help us with these ongoing investigations will contact us.”
You can watch the programme featuring Leicestershire cases today (23 June) on BBC1 at 9.15am.
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 and quote incident 202 of 22 June or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
