A couple in Ingol have been left feeling nervous following an incident on their drive last week.


In the early hours of Friday 28 May, two people can be seen on the driveway on Tag Lane. They appear suspicious as they approach the car and are looking around.

They then unplug the electric cable from the car before realising that there is a camera.

The resident who owns the car told BlogPreston: “It happened at 12.40 early morning seeing the people on your property and messing with the car makes you a bit nervous that they are prowling about at that time of the morning.

“I think they would have done more than just unplugging the electric cable from the car but they noticed the camera you can hear them on the video saying about the camera.

“The police said it has to be reported as it was a criminal offence to mess with the car.”
