About £6,500 worth of damage was caused to at least 23 parked vehicles in Maryport between Friday last week and Monday.

Damage includes scratches to paint work, wing mirrors kicked off, number plates pulled off and tyres slashed.

Cars in the North Street, Camp Street, Fleming Street, Fleming Terrace and Solway Terrace areas have been targeted.

A police spokesman condemned the vandalism as mindless and urged anyone with information to call 101. The damage is not being linked to the weekend's blues festival.

  • Cumbria Constabulary is urging residents to take simple measures - such as ensuring doors and windows are locked and not leaving property outside - to combat thieves.

In the last four days, six thefts have been reported. They include a pedal cycle taken from West Street, Wigton and a hose reel and water tanks from St Helen's Street, Cockermouth.
