An elderly couple from Wisbech had a rude awakening when their newly-fitted fence was broken down by vandals.
Michael and Daphne Lovett, who are in their 80s, had only just paid to have the new fence and panelling made to replace their old one.
Michael said: “It is not just the cost of repairing the work we have recently had done, but also the shock that is unsettling.
“At our age you like to feel secure in your home but vandalism such as this is very distressing”.
They were “visibly shaken” said a neighbour, to discover their new garden fence in their Penrose Gardens home had been damaged.

The neighbour said: “The fence posts were concreted into the ground. They were torn down and a whole panel was left lying on its side on the footpath. Some of the panelling had also been broken.”
The police have been informed of the incident which did not just affect Michael and Daphne’s property.
