PCSO Sawyer also issued a call to motorists over litter, which he said has "become a major issue" in the Overton and Penley areas, especially on the country roads.

He said: "The local neighbourhood Policing team are asking for people not to discard rubbish out of vehicle windows whilst driving and please do not leave litter behind in layby's, farm gates etc. 

"Don't get yourself a ticket for littering or possibly being reported for road traffic offences.

"Any littering issues are to be reported to Wrexham County Borough Council."
