Officers investigating damage to a house in Tuxford have recovered a vehicle.

We were called to reports that an unoccupied house was about to collapse in Ollerton Road at around 9am yesterday (Thursday 4 January 2018).

The vehicle was found abandoned nearby and officers believe it was used to cause the damage. It's currently being examined for evidence.

Enquiries continue and officers are appealing to anyone with any information that could help to contact us on 101 quoting incident 115 of 4 January 2018.

Neighborhood Inspector Mike Taylor said: "This is a very unusual offence for our area and we would like to reassure residents that we believe it to be an isolated attack. We are following up numerous lines of enquiry and have a team of investigators working on the case to bring those responsible to account as soon as we can. Uniformed officers will be out and about in the area over the next few days, so please approach them if you have any concerns or any information that may help us with our enquires."

If you did see anything suspicious in the area or have any information that could be of interest, please contact us. You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
