Officers investigating theft and damage to a taxi in Tideswell have released CCTV stills of men they would like to speak to.

The incident is understood to have happened between 4.25am and 5am on 25 September.

A taxi driver collected four men from Buxton Market Place and drove them to Tideswell. As he pulled up along High Street in Tideswell he noticed that one of the passengers had taken a sleeve of cigarettes from the boot of the car.

After the driver challenged the group, one of the men kicked the taxi door, smashing the passenger window and cracking the windscreen of the silver Ford Mondeo. The taxi driver then drove off.
