We have been made aware of a group of activists who call themselves The Tyre Extinguishers. This group target SUV & 4X4 type vehicles and will deflate the tyres on these, causing a nuisance to the owner to reflate the tyre.
At present they are mainly operating in the Clifton, Redland, Cotham and Stoke Bishop area as these are affluent areas.
Advice from the police at the moment is to report any incidents to us, even if no crime has been committed, it is good for us to log the incidents so we can see patterns in behaviour.
You can purchase Anti-Theft dust caps which will ensure this group cannot deflate your tyre in the future.
If you have a driveway, park your vehicle there instead of on the road.

These activists have started to widen their area and it would appear they are now operating in the Sea Mills area.
If you believe you have been targeted then please call 101.
