Police appeal for help after cars mysteriously moved to different locations

Surrey Police are appealing for witnesses following several incidents where cars have been moved in Woking. Three car owners have found their locked vehicles mysteriously moved to different locations. Over four days the cars were shifted to a new position with no indication of why or how they had been moved. Nothing was taken from the cars.

Baffled police said they had no idea why the cars had been moved but called the episodes "strange". Last Thursday, a woman heard "screeching and car horns" outside her home. When she went outside to investigate, she found her blue Peugeot blocking traffic in the middle of the road, 50ft (15m) from where she had originally parked it.

The vehicle had some damage to the back but the handbrake was on and the car was locked. On Saturday, a green Peugeot with a broken engine vanished from a communal car park at the back of Woking College where it had been waiting to be scrapped. It was found the following day by police dumped several miles away on the A322 in Bagshot.

Later on Sunday, the owner of a white Ford Fiesta found their locked car 100 yards (91m) from where it had been left. It had hit a post but nothing had been stolen from the vehicle. PC Julian Crabbe said: “We are linking these three incidents and would like to hear from anyone who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area or noticed a larger vehicle towing cars up the road.”

It is good to see the aliens with their big magnets are precise in their measurements.
They always moved the cars an exact 100 yards (91m) or 50 foots (I don't even remember what a feet looks like, we in the rest of the world - oh, apart from the so called good ol' USA - went metric in 1976, that's …76 from 100 plus 14, um … 38 big time units).

Even though Britain changed to decimal currency in 1971, in many ways it's never gone 'properly' metric.

Maybe for younger people, but I certainly still think in feet and inches. And pounds rather than kilogrammes.

And gallons. Litres completely confuse me.
