Detective Inspector Paula Hannaford said: “We are in the early stages of an investigation and at this point we believe this was probably not a random attack on a stranger.

“We are in the process of determining what happened and the reasons for this.

“The investigation is ongoing and we would like to hear from anyone who has not yet contacted police and may have information that could help.

“I am especially curious about people who saw the vehicles involved before or after the attack and who may have dashcam or CCTV footage.

“Anyone who has information, however small they consider it, is urged to come forward.”
