A garage’s CCTV footage has captured the moment a wing mirror was kicked off a car in Thorpe End.

Thorpe End Garage said they had handed police the footage of the incident, which they said happened in the early hours of Friday, August 2, and encouraged people to come forward with information.

Police said they were investigating two incidents of criminal damage in the village at the time.

The first happened at 2.19am outside the garage, on Plumstead Road, when a wing mirror of a vehicle was damaged.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.

In the second incident, a lion statue was damaged in the garden of a property on Plumstead Road at about 2.30am on the same day. The incident was reported the following morning.
