Officers are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the vehicle prior to or following the incident to get in touch. In particular, they would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the vehicle being abandoned on Ashville Avenue, or has any video or dashcam footage of its movements beforehand.

“Whilst a male suspect has been arrested in connection with this offence, I am still keen to hear from anyone who may have information that could help the investigation.

I am appealing for anyone who was out and about in the town centre around that time and may have witnessed the vehicle driving to come forward. I also wish to ask owners of CCTV cameras or dashcam devices to check for any footage around the time of the incident.

Even the smallest piece of information could be extremely useful.”
