Wheels stripped from cars at railway station

CCTV footage being probed

l A VW Golf and a BMW 5 Series were among the cars targeted by vandals at Warwick Parkway station last week.

POLICE are examining CCTV footage after six cars were vandalised at Warwick Parkway Railway Station — with two having all four wheels stripped off them.

The worst hit was a BMW, pictured above right, which has three windows smashed, its boot snapped off, and all four wheels stolen.

A window on a Volkswagen Golf was smashed and the car searched, with vandals doing the same to a Mazda, although nothing was stolen from either vehicle.

Three windows were smashed on an Audi and a spare wheel stolen, two windows smashed on a Mini and loose change stolen, while a sixth vehicle had its windscreen smashed and all four wheels stolen.

The vandalism took place in the station car park and was reported to police last Friday, 27th April, police said.

A spokesperson for Chiltern Railways, which runs the station, told the Midweek: “This car park is covered by CCTV and damage to vehicles across the route is rare.

“We are working with Warwickshire Police and assisting those that have been affected.”

Recently-published figures show over 1,600 journeys a day are made to or from the station, which opened in 2000.

    What a coincidence that the crime increases when the Kenilworth horse fair is in town!

      It was not a traveller it was a local as they caught him!
