POLICE are appealing for information after a 'suspicious' 4X4 was seen pulling onto someone's drive with the number plates covered up.

Officers investigating the suspicious incident in the Stockbridge area have released CCTV footage of the vehicle.

A dark coloured 4x4, thought to be a pre-2006/07 Nissan X-Trail, was driven up to the address.

It took place at around 1.30am on Sunday, May 3.

An investigation is underway and officers have released CCTV images of the vehicle as part of their enquiries.

The vehicle has been described as having a tow bar and a very loud exhaust.

“We are following several lines of enquiry and we are keen to hear from anyone who was in the Stockbridge area that night.

“Do you remember seeing a dark-coloured 4x4 vehicle?

“Or perhaps you have seen a similar vehicle in suspicious circumstances in another area?

“Any information you give could help our enquiries.”
