Lorry damaged in Purfleet attempted theft
POLICE are appealing for information after a lorry sustained damage costing £1,000 in an attempted theft.
The lorry was parked in Botany Way, Purfleet, on Wednesday, October 30 when three men, who were reported as acting suspiciously, were spotted shortly before 3am.
When police arrived on scene the three men fled and, despite having help from the police helicopter, were not found.
They found a slash to the nearside curtain of the lorry and entry had been gained to the rear, although it is not clear if anything was stolen.
Police are continuing to trace a white seven-and-a-half tonne curtain-sided lorry that was seen close to the scene at the time. It had no rear registration plate.
Anyone with information should call Essex Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
