Police said the cars were targeted on Thursday when they were parked on Criffel Street and nearby Alma Terrace and Pine Terrace in Silloth.

The tyres were punctured with a sharp instrument in what police described as "mindless damage."

Inspector Dennis Kelly appealed for witnesses.

"To carry out these acts at any time is upsetting for victims - but at a time when most people are suffering financially due to the pressures of the financial climate and just after Christmas, these crimes can have a more serious impact on victims’ lives," he said.

"Replacing tyres is costly and it could also create difficulties for insurance premiums.

"Acts of mindless damage like this are taken seriously. Regular patrols are making checks of the area and an investigation is ongoing."

He appealed for information and asked people to call Allerdale rural police on the non-emergency police number, 101, or by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
