Horses covered in paint by vandals

TWO horses had paint thrown over them after vandals broke into stables in Seaton Delaval at the weekend.

Between 4.30pm on Friday February 18, and 10.50am Saturday, February 19, the offenders got into the stable area at Weetridge Allotments, in Seaton Delaval, and chucked paint over the stable buildings.

They also poured paint over two horses that were nearby.

Cramlington Neighbourhood Inspector Dave Fitzgerald said: “I’d ask for anyone who was in the area around the allotments either late Friday or the early hours of Saturday morning and who saw any suspicious vehicles or people to contact police with anything they might have seen.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 03456 043 043 ext 69191 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
