THE ABANDONED vehicle dubbed the ‘crack house coach’ by a Rubery councillor has been removed by police this morning.
Coun Peter McDonald had called for action to be taken because, he claimed, people had been using the converted van in the layby on the A38 between Rubery and the M5 island to take drugs and paraphernalia had been left strewn all over it.
It was unclear whose responsibility it was to move it.
We contacted the DVLA, DVSA, Worcestershire County Council, Bromsgrove District Council and Rubery Police.
The police Safer Neighbourhood Team managed to track down and contact the owner who they told to move it by today (Friday) or it would be seized.
The vehicle had no MoT, tax or insurance.
Resident Nick Husband captured the moment the coach was towed away –
