Large aluminium gates have been stolen by suspected metal thieves from a business premises in Banbury. Thames Valley Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after workers discovered the gates were missing from the property on Southam Road.
Thames Valley Police have issued cctv images of two men who may have vital information about the theft of a car in Banbury in Oxfordshire.
A dark grey Hyundai Getz (58 plate) was taken from where it was parked in in Danesmoor, between 1.30pm and 6pm on Thursday August 23.
The car was later found at 8.15pm that evening parked in Forgeway. Its front bumper was slightly damaged. PC Kelly Gilbert from Thames Valley Police said: “The car belonged to an elderly woman, who it is believed had dropped her keys near the vehicle earlier that day.
"The car was then stolen, driven around and damaged and then parked up in Forgeway, no doubt with the intention of being used again by the offenders at a later time. The keys are still missing.
“I would like to speak to anyone who recognises the two men in the CCTV images or who has any information which may help us with the investigation.”
Chiltern Railways has responded by adding 2 extra carriages to the busiest commuter trains. The company say it will mean 1,000 extra seats a week for passengers. Since the launch of Mainline just 12 months ago, there has been a significant increase in passengers travelling on rush hour services.
Banbury is a key Chiltern station at the heart of our network. We’re delighted to be able to offer more seats from Banbury as we continue to improve our service, to ensure that our passengers have the best service possible.
