Officers investigating a robbery have written a message on a car windscreen asking the culprits to contact police about the "stolen car and cannabis left behind".

West Midlands Police said machete-wielding robbers had rammed into an industrial unit in Tividale, Sandwell, West Midlands on Sunday afternoon.

Police officers who found a stolen car wrote a message on the vehicle's windscreen which read: "Please contact West Midlands Police, ref the cannabis and stolen car in the garage."

Tweeting another message to the suspected robbers, West Midlands Force Response said: "I want a word with you.

"Was it you who rammed into the shutters of a unit in Tividale this afternoon waving machetes around?

"You've left your stolen car and a load of cannabis behind.. Come and have a chat with me, I'll be kind... honest."
