Police Appeal after Man’s Head Caved in with a shovel at M25 Cobham Services

Police investigating a serious assault at Cobham Services yesterday afternoon are trying to trace a white van that was seen nearby at the time.





The van is a white Peugeot Partner Van, registration NX63 VLP, with a roof rack and ladder strapped to the roof.
Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Jo Hayes said:
“We are appealing to the public to help us trace this van. I want to know the route it took to get to the services, where it went once it left Cobham services, and where it is now. I also want to know who was in the van, and where they are now.



“We also believe that there are witnesses who have yet to make contact with us, and I would urge them to come forward by calling us on 101. In particular I understand there may have been people filming the incident on mobile phones or dashcams, and their footage could be invaluable to our investigation.”

Officers were called to the petrol station forecourt at Cobham Services (between Junctions 9 and 10 of the M25) at around 3.20pm yesterday (26/6) to reports of a fight between two groups of people. A 20-year-old man was flown by air ambulance to hospital with head injuries, where he is in a critical condition. His family have been informed.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 (999 in an emergency) or report it online at http://report.police.uk, quoting 45170068211.
