“We’re committed to getting to the bottom of what happened here, so would plead with anyone who has any information about this, however small it may seem, to contact the police.

“This includes any dash-cam or CCTV footage taken in the area at around 6.30pm last Saturday, as this could really assist us with our inquiries.
