CCTV footage of two people thought to be connected with cars having their tyres deflated has been released by police.

Officers are investigating dozens of incidents of SUVs and 4x4s having their tyres let down across Brighton and Hove since the beginning of March.

Police say the incidents are believed to be linked to a group named Tyre Extinguishers.

At 11.45pm on Monday, May 9, two people were caught on CCTV in Glynde Road, Brighton.

They can be seen to crouch down next to an SUV for a few seconds then leaving the scene.

“We have since received reports of tyres having been deflated in Glynde Road and the surrounding streets, as well as other areas of the city,” a Sussex Police spokesman said.

Police are looking to identify these two people in connection with the tyres deflating incidents.

If you recognise them or have any information which could lead to their identification, contact police online or by calling 101, quoting Operation Extinguisher.

Police are also appealing for information and witnesses after further vehicles were targeted.

There were several reports of incidents overnight on May 9 and 10 in Denmark Villas, Montpelier Villas and in the Queen's Park area.

Police are appealing to anybody who lives in and around those areas to check video doorbell, CCTV and dashcam footage.

“If your vehicle is affected, then a leaflet will be left advising you why your tyres have been deflated,” a police spokeswoman said.

“If you become a victim, then please retain the leaflet, report it via 101 or online, quoting Operation Extinguisher and a PCSO will attend to take your report.

“We are following up all lines of enquiry and working hard to find those responsible and we appreciate the public's help so if you see anything suspicious or have any information, no matter how small, which may assist then please get in touch."

Earlier this month, police launched an investigation after hundreds of tyres were deflated by activists in a single night.

The Tyre Extinguishers said its supporters targeted 250 SUVS in Brighton and Hove in an attempt to “make it impossible” to own the vehicles in urban areas.

Drivers in Dawson Terrace, Brighton, woke to find at least five vehicles in the street had been targeted.

Inspector Nicky Stuart, from Brighton and Hove’s Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We understand the impact these crimes have on the community, and I would like to reassure the public that our officers are working hard to catch those responsible.
