‘Officers have been conducting a number of enquiries to identify the group and we are now turning to the public for help.

‘Were you in the area the time? Did you see what happened or see the group in the aftermath of the incident? Perhaps you were in the vehicle that drove past? Maybe you have dash cam footage from the area at the time?’
