Nothing was stolen from any of the vehicles.

Shortly after the reported time of the incidents, three male young people were seen leaving the area.

“I am really keen to speak to the driver as they may have witnessed what happened or have important information to assist my enquiries. I would like to stress that they are purely being sought as a witness.

“I would also urge anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity in the vicinity to please come forward and report it to Dorset Police.

“Finally, if anyone witnessed three young people in the area or has any information to help my investigation, please get in touch.”
