Third tyre slashing spree in city
Up to 50 vehicles have been vandalised in a spate of tyre slashing in Coventry which is the third incident of its kind in the city this month.

Police have stepped up patrols in the Whoberley area as a result of the latest attacks on Tuesday night.

Earlier this month hundreds of vehicles were vandalised in Walsgrave, Stoke Heath and Wyken.

Detectives believe the same gang is responsible for the attacks and are appealing for information.
