The haul was discovered early this morning - and police are now trying to trace where it came from.

17 car batteries, copper cabling and 5 alloy wheels were found at around 7.30am today (Monday July 22nd).

It was all spotted on the edge of Holders Field in undergrowth near the cut through to Maple Way.

Police say they're treating it as a 'suspicious incident'.


They've told us a man was seen dumping rubbish - he's described as:

  • White
  • Aged in his 30s
  • Wearing a red T-shirt
  • Dark shorts

There's now an appeal to find out why the items had been dumped.

Officers are looking for information into the identity of the man believed to be involved.

If you can help, you're asked to call PC Andy Morgan at Amesbury CPT on 101, quoting log 46 of July 22nd.
