Horses have paint thrown on them by vandals

TWO horses had paint poured over them after vandals targeted and damaged the stables they were in.

Offenders got into the stable area at Weetridge Allotments, in Seaton Delaval, between 4.30pm on Friday, February 18, and 10.50am the following day, throwing 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 043043 ext 69191 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
