a description of the car involved would be nice, there are LOADS of silver Vauxhall Corsa's in newport.

i am pretty certain there is CCTV in that car park so perhaps a picture from the CCTV would be nice??

the car can only drive off in 1 directing, past the information station, i am not sure, but they might have CCTV that can see outside to get another view of the car.
Oh and since that's a spot where the buses are stopping now, i am SURE that a bus would have picked up the car on their CCTV.
so you can easily get hold of some sort of CCTV footage.

Maybe there is no longer CCTV in operation. Earlier stories of cuts to save money indicated that it was likely to be turned off as one of the Council cuts to save money. Probably all of the CCTV operators have been made redundant.

Yup, Bob Brightstar Brights bright ideas, Yes, As if Newport wasn't rough enough, lets turn the eyes and ears off to the safe backbone of the city. I bet the feral youth are just itching to pounce once that grey headed, arrogant, no hoper of a Councillor gives them the ok to do it.
