FOUR men have been questioned by police on suspicion of stealing fuel from parked lorries in Solihull.

Officers were called just before 1.30am after a lorry driver, who was parked in a lay-by in Meriden, spotted a group of men behaving suspiciously.

When police arrived the men, aged between 25 and 32, attempted to flee the scene but the force’s helicopter was able to use its thermal imaging camera to direct officers to the men.

The group have now been bailed pending further inquiries.
