POLICE have appealed for information after at least 48 vehicles were damaged overnight in the Warminster and Westbury areas.

The trail of mindless and wanton destruction happened between 10pm on Monday July 8 and 1am on Tuesday July 9.

Vehicle windows were smashed in several streets in Warminster and Westbury, including Woodcock Road, Church Street, Highbury Park, Boreham Field and Oldfield Park.

The yobs also targeted vehicles in Westbury Leigh, Bishopstrow, Sutton Veny and Longbridge Deverill.

Community co-ordinator PC Helen Daveridge said: "This is a completely mindless act which would have caused inconvenience and unnecessary stress for the victims, many of whom I am sure rely on their cars to get to and from work.

"We've received a large number of reports to date, and would urge anyone who may have seen or heard any suspicious activity in these areas overnight to get in touch as you could have information which could significantly help our investigation."

Anyone who needs to report vehicle damage should call 101. If you have information to help police, call 101 and quote crime reference number 54190066483.
