A message from Colin Fotland - Caldecote Village Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator.
Subject: WARNING Caldecote Village - Incidents of Damage to Car Tyres.
After discovering that Caldecote village residents had become victim to fourteen car tyre damage incidents between February and May 2014, with screws, roofing bolts and nails being embedded in car tyres, it was hoped that following a lull in this type of activity that the problem had ended.
Sadly this wasn't the case and it now seems to be escalating again and heading towards epidemic proportion, with the latest incident becoming ever more dangerous, when a woman driving on the M11 and overtaking a lorry recently, almost lost control of the car and narrowly avoided an accident, caused by a nail having been inserted in one of her car tyres.
I would now urge all Caldecote village drivers to be extra vigilant and to make a point of checking all of their vehicle tyres on a regular basis, before setting off on any journey, until such time as these incidents have been eradicated, because your personal safety could depend on this.
If you discover anything suspicious when checking vehicles, please do not hesitate to contact me, Colin Fotland, Caldecote Village Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator, on telephone number 01954 - 210042 (Home), 07976 - 430681 (Mobile) or e-mail at email@example.com at any time, as I am closely monitoring this situation and will advise you personally on the best course of action in respect of calling the 101 telephone number and requesting either a Crime Number or an Incident number, depending on the circumstances.
NB. This must be at the time of the incident or very soon afterwards.
In addition, if you have any suspicions or ideas of who is, or who could be involved in damaging car tyres in this manner, please get in touch with me at any of the contact details above.
