In Eastbourne Road, wing mirrors were smashed from two cars and a fence was damaged. In Farmlands Way, three cars had their wing mirrors knocked off and two garden walls were damaged. Houses in Gorringe Road and Gorringe Valley Drive also had garden walls partially demolished. The previous week, between 2-3 November, two garden walls were damaged in Wannock Avenue, and a garden wall was knocked down in St John’s Road in nearby Polegate overnight on 7-8 November. Police Community Support Officer Alison Beaden said: “This sort of senseless vandalism causes great inconvenience and distress for local residents. “In the case of the garden walls it would have taken some effort to do this sort of damage, so if anyone saw or heard anything suspicious in the areas during the times mentioned I would urge them to report it to police.” Anyone with information is asked to email `or call 101.
