Vandals attack trees

POLICE are appealing for information after vandals felled two trees.

The trees in Spalding Road on Hartlepool’s Fens estate had their trunks broken overnight on Friday.

Ward councillor Steve Gibbon said: “The trees were planted a few months ago at the request of local residents to replace trees that were vandalised last year.

“I’ve asked around, but no one knows what time the damage was done or who may have done it.”

The incident is being looked into by the local neighbourhood police.

Anyone with information should contact PC Lorene Haworth on (01642) 302178.
