POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a around a dozen cars were vandalised in Hoylake between so-called "Mischief Night" and Halloween.

Vandals went on a wrecking spree smashing windscreens, windows and wing mirrors including those parked in Lake Place, Groveland Avenue, Cable Road and Charles Road areas over the two nights.

Police said it is not clear if any of the incidents of Wednesday, October 30 and Thursday, October 31, are linked - or if the same person or people are responsible.

Wirral community policing inspector Paul Harrison said: “Considerable damage has been caused to a number of vehicles in what can only be described as mindless acts of vandalism.

“This type of behaviour is not acceptable and it cannot be dismissed as just a bit of fun.

"A number of people will have been left out of pocket and greatly inconvenienced by the actions of a minority.

“I would appeal to anyone who was in the Hoylake area on Wednesday or Thursday night who saw anyone or anything suspicious to contact us.

“I would also appeal to motorists and taxi drivers to check their dash cam footage as they may have information which is vital to our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to DM @MerPolCC, call 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
