Abandoned car at Mottingham Lane (Greenwich council side)

Reported via desktop in the Abandoned vehicles category anonymously at 13:34, Mon 1 August 2022

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3722067.

There were a gang of men leaving an abandoned Mini at the Mottingham Lane (on the side belong to the Greenwich council). This had been going on for few weeks already. As seen in the photos, the men dropped the car at the end of the road, and took away all the wheels and parts. None of them had been seen ever since.

THe engine oil of the car is dripping down on the road. There are young children on that street, and is therefore posing serious concerns for the safety of the children.

I would be grateful if this can be resolved asap.
