An appeal has been launched after a BMW’s rear windscreen was smashed while parked in Royston overnight – with a cyclist believed to have been injured in the crash.
Police are appealing for witnesses after an incident in Poplar Drive which saw a parked BMW 320d’s rear windscreen smashed.
The damage took place at some point between 11pm on Wednesday and 8am yesterday – when the owner returned to the car after parking it in the road the night before.
