“I am especially keen to receive any dash cam footage from drivers who may have been in the area at the time, particularly travelling between Budshead Road and Looseleigh Lane on what is locally known as Clarks Hill.”
Anyone who can assist is asked to contact police via firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 101, quoting log number 101 of 10/06/17.
