4:35pm Wednesday 11th December 2013 in News
AN award-winning Sale Christmas display was wrecked by a mob.
The offenders launched their attack on the front garden display at approximately 1.45am, on Wednesday December 4, on Washway Road.
A group of youths, aged between 16 and 19, was seen loitering around the area shortly before the incident.
Numerous ornaments were knocked over, causing around £700 worth of damage.
PC Mark Hetherington said: “This display is enjoyed by members of the community who often go and visit this house in the festive spirit.
“It has been awarded with prizes in the past for its ability to capture the public imagination.
“Sadly those responsible for this yobbish behaviour gave no consideration to the money, time and effort that went into producing this spectacle.
“We would urge any witnesses to call us so we can bring these offenders to justice.”
