We are appealing for witnesses after eleven cars were scratched in one night on a street in Normanton, Derby. 

The offences happened between 7.30pm and 10.30pm, last night, Tuesday, January 10 whilst the cars were parked on Alexandra Gardens. 

PC Andy Hardy from our Normanton Safer Neighbourhood team is investigating the crimes and says: “There appears to be absolutely no motive for this other than mindless violence. The victims are faced with costly repair bills for the damage caused and so I would ask anyone who has information about this to get in touch with us.” 

You can contact Andy and the team on 101 quoting reference number 1700013933. Alternatively send him a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
