Police released CCTV footage and a picture of a man they want to trace today (Monday 17) in connection with £9,000 worth of damage to a parked Aston Martin car.

Police were called on Friday, 19 June to reports of criminal damage to the car, which was parked in the car park of a supermarket, in Morning Lane.

The driver of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage had parked his car at 10:30am and left his dashboard camera turned on as he went shopping.

Moments later, a tall black man approached the car pushing a baby in a pram.

He took out a bunch of keys from his pocket and scraped them down the passenger’s side of the vehicle.

Police are appealing for people with any information to come forward by calling police on 101 quoting image 182820 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
