“This senseless criminality is clearly unacceptable and I am appealing for anyone with information to come forward and help me to bring those responsible to justice.
“Anyone who witnessed this incident – and anyone who saw any suspicious activity in this area during the night of Wednesday, 16 and the early hours of Thursday, 17 March – should contact me urgently.”

An unknown instrument was used to extensively damage the paintwork of all seven vehicles.
Police Constable Darren Harris, of Poole police, said:
“I am appealing for anyone who witnessed these vehicles being damaged, and anyone who noticed any suspicious behaviour along Fitzworth Avenue on Saturday afternoon, to contact the Hamworthy Safer Neighbourhood team urgently.
“Damage like this can be very upsetting for victims, as such vandalism can prove extremely costly and time-consuming to rectify.”
