EDITOR'S COMMENT: Vigilance needed amid sickening spate of carjackings

Les Reid 28th Oct, 2018 Updated: 29th Oct, 2018

CARJACKING is a terrifying and despicable crime.

And it appears to be on the increase in Solihull borough. Due caution and vigilence is urged.

We have had to report on many sickening carjacking incidents and vehicle robberies in recent years.

They included one where a mum was dragged along the road in her car while her baby was driven away by the thugs.

In other sickening incidents, we’ve reported baseball-bat wielding attacks.

The police need to be commended on their investigations which led to the jailing this week of the gang whose faces we print on today’s front page.
