Acton Nail-Under-Tyres Warning for people living in or visiting the Wrexham area
This article is old - Published: Saturday, Dec 3rd, 2011

One of the nails found under the cars

A reader ( @alexio1982 of AD Cleaning Services) this morning let us know that several cars in the Acton area were subject to a hidden nail attack this morning. Nails had been welded to small metal plates and placed under tyres, with the intent to puncture the tyres when the car was moved.

One person is reported to have had a puncture, with two nails being used on their car.

St Margarets way in Acton is a confirmed road that was targetted, however we would urge all residents to check under and around their cars.

The plate is pictured, and was described as ‘professional cut’ and ‘definitely done in a workshop and not kids’.

The LLPD checking out the area.

The police have been called and are in attendance at the time of writing.

Have you found one this morning? Let us know below in the comments, on our wrexham forum or tweet us @wrexham
