Police are appealing for information after a school in North Walsham was targeted by vandals.

Five windows were smashed on a mobile classroom on the grounds of North Walsham Junior School between 5.30pm on Wednesday 29 October and 9am on Thursday 30 October. Damage was also caused to a goal post and fencing and turf was ripped up.

Extensive damage was also caused to a mobile classroom at North Walsham Infant School and Nursery between 8pm and 10pm on Friday 31 October. Plastic benches were also thrown into a pond and turf ripped up.

Inspector Kersty Brooks, Local Policing Commander for North Walsham, said: “The vandals who carried out these senseless acts clearly have no regard for the community.”

“Any incident of criminal damage is upsetting for the victim; however, for these schools to be targeted in a matter of days is all the more concerning. Both schools are now counting the cost of these incidents and I would urge anyone with information to contact police.”

Anyone who may have seen anything suspicious between the times stated should contact PC Emma Hill or PC Tina Wright at North Walsham Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
