CALLOUS vandals who nicknamed themselves the party crew daubed “you’ve been raided” on a shed after carrying out another allotment wrecking spree.

The mindless intruders signed off their heartless handiwork with “ha ha party crew” and a smiley face after breaking into several plots at Thornhill Gardens, in Hartlepool.

Police are now carrying out night-time patrols after being told of two allotments being targeted by a suspected gang of youths on Sunday and Monday night.
