“We have previously appealed for dash cam footage of a grey Skoda Karoq registration YB69 MUP which was found burned out at the bottom of The Wrekin last Tuesday night.

“I would continue to ask anyone who has dash cam footage of these vehicles, or maybe remembers seeing them, in Telford last Tuesday, or in the days leading up to last Tuesday, to either get in contact with us through the major incident public portal, or if they don’t want to provide their details or come through police they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously.”
