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.
