“As part of that, there will be officers in the area surrounding Brandon Road and Rugby Road.

“Please speak to them if you think you saw something or can help – your information could be key to our investigation.

“Equally we’d encourage anyone who has dashcam footage and was travelling along Brandon Road or Rugby Road between 1.30pm and 3pm last Monday to contact us.”
