Google Used To Solve Crime in Bromsgrove

by | 26th, March 2010

TO Aston Fields, Bromsgrove, where Google Maps takes on the case of the cyclist struck in the head by an object tossed from a van. The Bromsgrove Advertiser reports:

The van is said to be a white Ford Connect with large lettering on the side of it, possibly including the letters CCS and some smaller letters, which may have included the words ‘law enforcement’.

Interesting. And in the spirit of civil order we tell you:

Anyone with information is asked to call Bromsgrove police on 0300 333 3000, quoting incident 729-S-220310, or crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

To the comments:

Using Google Maps to search for “CCS near St Godwalds Road” returns the following result: “CCS Enforcement Services, The Croft, Buntsford Drive, Stoke Heath, Bromsgrove B60 4JE, 01527 572000‎”. Perhaps the Police would be well advised to direct their enquiries towards this organisation.
