Time 2 years ago

POLICE won’t be taken any action against a customer who was reported for assault after a car dealer’s finger was said to have been broken in a valuation row.   

An assault was reported following a fracas at the We Buy Any Car garage on Bailey Bridge Retail Park in Christchurch, Dorset, on September 12.

It was alleged that a male customer became angry at the valuation of a car and shut a member of staff’s hand in the vehicle door, resulting in the employee suffering a broken finger.


A 49-year-old man from New Milton was arrested on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent and released pending investigation.

However, according to the Daily Echo, Dorset Police have released him from their investigation and he won’t be facing any action from them. Police aren’t seeking anybody else.
