Avon and Somerset Constabulary are appealing for witnesses after several incidents of criminal damage costing hundreds of pounds were committed in North Petherton.

Between the 29 August and 1 September 2015, nine cars had their tyres slashed in the Baymead Meadow, Baymead Lane, Watery Lane and Ellen Close areas of the town.

PCSO Georgina Long said: “We are appealing for witnesses to any of these incidents. Nine vehicle owners have had multiple tyres slashed, which obviously has a financial implication in addition to being extremely inconvenient.

“If you saw anything, or you have been a victim of a similar incident then please get in touch with me by calling 101 and quoting reference number 95648/15.”
