POLICE have urged people to be on the lookout for a suspicious vehicle across Dorset.

A post on the Dorset Police Rural Crime Team said a white Mercedes minibus was seen in suspicious circumstances near farm buildings in the Dorchester area.

The post said: “When the vehicle was approached it sped away. We have no further details about the vehicle at this time.

“If this vehicle or other vehicles are seen acting suspiciously, please gather as much information as possible such as the registration number and descriptions of the driver and any passengers and if it’s safe to do so please do take a photograph, don’t put yourself in danger to do this.

“Please contact Dorset Police immediately by calling 999 if the vehicle or occupants are seen committing crime.

“For non-emergency call 101 or at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk.”
