NEARLY 30 vehicles parked on driveways in Harpenden were damaged by either a stone or piece of flint during last Friday.

Vehicles parked in Station Road and Lyndhurst Drive were scratched sometime between 9.30am last Friday, August 15, and 12.30am on Saturday, August 16.

Police are encouraging anyone who knows who was responsible to blow the whistle on them.

Harpenden Neighbourhood Sergeant Lewis Ducket said: "Causing damage to cars is mindless vandalism and is a criminal offence not a prank. Not only is it very inconvenient to find your car damaged but it also costs a lot of money to repair.

"We hope someone will tell us who is responsible as we expect they will brag to their friends about what they have done."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sgt Ducket in confidence on 01727 796127 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0845 33 00 222.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
