A parish councillor has spoken out about “totally unacceptable” vandalism of a parish-owned bus shelter left covered in shattered glass.
Wisbech St Mary parish councillor and chairman David Wheeler has slammed vandals following the costly incident at Gull Road in Guyhirn and says it isn’t a one off.
Two glass panels were smashed, along with another in a previous incident, over the weekend and will cost around £700 to repair.
Cllr Wheeler said: “These actions by individuals need to stop, apart from being a criminal offence it’s inconveniencing the parish residents and is something totally unacceptable.
“Other acts of vandalism, in the form of writing on bus shelter walls, in two separate shelters cost the council £100 bill redecoration every time it’s done.
