Did this caravan come to grief on a Fenland road by accident? Or was it, as police suspect, a case of fly tipping?

Police launched an appeal to find the owner of a caravan who they suspect dumped into a riverside drain alongside the Whittlesey Road, Turves.

Officers posted pictures of the caravan on social media in the hope someone might recognise who last owned it.

“Lost a caravan? We found one,” police reported on Twitter.

They added: “Might need a bit of TLC”.

A later post remarked: “No one has come forward to claim their caravan from this morning as of yet. Not surprised!”
