Police Seek Witnesses To Leegomery Incident
Police in Telford are appealing for witnesses to come forward following an incident in Leegomery during the weekend.
An incident occurred between the occupants of two vehicles - a black BMW and a silver Polo, which were parked in Grainger Drive, at around 7.15pm on Saturday (8 September).
One occupant from each of the vehicles got out and a brief foot chase between the two occurred, towards Catterick Close.
