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.”
