After months of misery for the motorists of Brampton in Cumbria, police have finally discovered the identity of a mystery tyre slasher - a border collie called Jess.

Drivers in Jocks Hill and The Sands had been complaining of damage to their tyres for over six months before the discovery was made via CCTV footage.

PC Simon Amos, who cracked the conundrum, said: “The owner has been contacted and has been very surprised and also apologetic about the whole situation.

"He will be now keeping Jess on a lead."
