DETECTIVES are launching a fresh appeal to catch vile louts responsible for dumping a severed pig’s head on the seat of a former police officer’s car in Wigan.

The 54-year-old victim was shocked to find the window of his grey Land Rover Freelander had been smashed after he returned from an early morning dog walk.

Wigan police say the bizarre attack was premeditated but initial hopes of passers-by witnessing the events have not led to any arrests.

A force spokesman said: “We are still asking for people to come forward, the incident occurred on a busy through-route during morning rush hour.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 7124.
