Police are asking for information after play equipment was damaged and a scarecrow display was vandalised in Harleston over the weekend.

Offensive graffiti was scratched into a bench and screws were removed and a swing and wooden shelter were damaged at the Recreation Ground in Wilderness Lane, between Monday and Friday.

On Sunday at about 10.30pm a number of youths were seen to damage a scarecrow display in Malthouse Court. Items were later found damaged a short distance away.

Police believe the incidents are linked and would like to hear from anyone who may have seen a group of youths acting suspiciously in the area.

Anyone with information should contact PCSO Chris Shelley at Harleston Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
