Allotments in Brixington have been targeted by vandals, prompting a police appeal for help.

Officers said several allotment plots at Pound Lane have been hit, with numerous sheds forced open and locks broken.

Police community support officer Chris Ball said water-based paint had also been splashed around and onto vehicles in the St Johns Road and Cheriswood Avenue areas.
