Tyre Extinguishers

In recent months there have been incidents of tyres being deflated on vehicles across many areas of Bristol including Clifton, this is part of a nationwide/world campaign by a group known as the TYRE EXTINGUISHERS.

The aim of the group is to “disable” 4×4 and SUV vehicles as they believe they are polluting and dangerous.

The group will normally leave a flyer with the vehicle to advise of their actions and their reasoning behind this.

Please check your vehicle prior to driving and if you see a crime taking place, please call 999.

If you wish to report a crime call 101 or report online.

    More incidents occurred in the Clifton area in mid November. Whilst some footage has been sent to police of potential people involved,  we would encourage anyone who is a victim and not yet contact us to please call or email the local neighbourhood team. Any CCTV footage would be of a valuable evidential use.
