A woman whose car was hit in a road crash at Sutton Bridge was tracked down by two men and “offered several thousand pounds” to take responsibility for the accident.
Parish councillor Vicky Hills gave details of the incident in which the woman’s car was hit as she waited to turn right in the Chestnut Terrace area and said two men knocked on doors until they found her address.
She told Sutton Bridge Parish Council: “Two rather large gentlemen asked her if she would take responsibility and they would pay her several thousand pounds.”
Coun Hills said police were aware, but she understood the woman was told what the men did was not illegal.
Police inspector Jim Tyner said police are investigating the accident.
