Cllr Billy Webb said: “This spate of car hijackings must stop before somebody gets seriously injured or worse.
“I am glad that the driver was able to get away from this hijacker safely without injury. I would urge all drivers to make sure that they keep their doors locked and windows up when driving.
“If anybody has any information about this attempted car hijacking or any of the other hijackings then I would urge them to contact the police. These criminals are causing the public to be scared when out driving, but I would urge all drivers to be vigilant to this crime.”
