Detectives are still appealing for information about a series of incidents where items were left on roads – though no new incidents have occurred.

Essex Police launched an investigation after debris, including concrete blocks and barbed wire, was deliberately placed on roads around Tiptree.

A total of 19 incidents have been recorded, taking place between December 3-30, on roads including Grange Road, Kelvedon Road, Maldon Road and the B1022, and causing thousands of pounds of damage.

Detective Inspector Scott Egerton said: “We believe these items were placed with the intention to cause danger to motorists. Fortunately, no one has sustained any injuries but significant damage has been caused to vehicles.

“Although we’ve had no incidents since December 30, we’re still keen to speak to any motorists affected as they may be able to assist our investigation.”

Call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101 or email collisionappeal@essex.pnn.police.uk with information.
