Police probe attacks on commuters' cars

POLICE are probing damage to cars parked by commuters in Dorridge streets.

Solihull police said: “It is believed vehicles are being damaged when left in nearby streets by commuters using Dorridge Railway Station, right.

“We will be monitoring this situation and carrying out targeted patrols in the area and will review this priority in February.”

West Midlands Police is working with British Transport Police on the matter, an update on the force’s website says.

Commuters parking in surrounding streets has caused ill-feeling among many residents.

Last month Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council was given a petition over concerns about parking in Arden Road and the surrounding cul de sacs, Aspley Drive and Arden Drive.

Police have refused to release details of where cars had been broken into and what was taken when asked by The Silhillian using the Freedom of Information Act.
