Car Vandalism in Low Hutton

From Lesley Seeger  via email:

During the last year my car has been vandalised with scratches and superglue.

The rubber window surround has been pulled outand the back window smashed.

I thought people should be aware if they are parking their cars there and also might be able to shed some light on the problem.

A report has been made to the police so we can monitor the situation.
 (So watch out if you park down by the railway bridge in Low Hutton and if you spot any untoward activity, call the police!)
