On October 31, officers were called to Stonehills in the town centre at around 2.50pm to reports that a blue Nissan Micra had been involved in a minor crash with a stationary vehicle before subsequently colliding with scaffolding outside the Nationwide Building Society.

Firefighters cut the top off the vehicle to free the 90-year-old driver and she was subsequently flown to the Royal Free Hospital in London.

No-one else was injured.

This morning, November 6, police confirmed that the woman was still in a critical condition.

A police spokeswoman said: “Officers are keen to speak to anyone who can assist their inquiries.

“If you witnessed what happened please contact Sergeant Pete Talbot from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit via the Herts Police non-emergency number 101. The incident number is 459 of 31st October.
