James Hewett, 40, who runs the nearby garage, said: ‘It is a slight concern but I don’t think there’s more of it.

‘I don’t think the amount (of incidents) is going up, it gets more widely reported.’

Traffic has not been affected by the cordon, which is on the pavement.

He said he didn’t see anything when he returned last night to the area at 11pm but saw the cordon in place by 7am today.
