Detectives investigating a road rage attack which left a lorry driver with a fractured cheekbone have issued CCTV images of a car they want to trace.

Surrey Police said the car involved in the attack in Guildford last Thursday was a "distinctive" silver Nissan Micra with a missing nearside hubcap.

The car had a sunroof, black wing mirrors and black trim on the doors.

The attack happened at 10:10 GMT on the A320 by a roundabout with Woodlands Road, near Slyfields industrial estate.

Police said the Micra stopped at a pedestrian crossing in front of a white lorry.

The two drivers got out and approached each other, and the Micra driver allegedly attacked the lorry driver. The attacker is described as Asian and aged between 30 and 40 with a short beard and short black hair.

Officers said the Micra was seen on CCTV turning out of the Esso garage forecourt along Hazle Avenue, towards Bellfields.

Police said the attack was on a busy route and people would have been using the petrol station, so there would probably be witnesses.

Det Con Mike Taylor said: "If you have seen this vehicle around the area, perhaps parked in your road, or know of one which has recently had a hubcap fitted, we'd like to hear from you."
