Police on the hunt for land train vandals
PUBLISHED: 10:00 26 November 2015
Police have issued an appeal for help in tracking down vandals who struck at the Exmouth land train’s garaging facilities on the Maer Road car park.
Graffiti was sprayed on the train’s garage and gate, denting plans to create more room for wheelchairs because of potential clean-up costs.
Kevin Macleod, Devon and Cornwall Constabulary PCSO, has urged anyone with information to contact the police.
He said: “Between November 15 and November 16, damage was caused to a container at the Maer Road car park, which is used to store the Exmouth land train.
“The tag NKS [identification mark] had been sprayed all over the container. If you have any information which you think may be useful, please contact us.”
Helen Newton, train manager, told the Journal last week she wants the culprits to clean up their mess.
She fears the graffiti damage will turn Exmouth residents away from using the service next year.
Anyone with information should contact police on the 101 non emergency number, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 quoting crime reference number CR/079641/15.
