Officers spoke to the pair on Thursday (December 20) who claimed they were "just out for a casual stroll" - yet were 100 miles from home.

A vehicle in a ditch was also spotted; which has been seized for forensic examination.

Both men had injuries to their face and claimed having no connection to the untaxed and uninsured Cherokee, police said.
