VANDALS have hit The Maer again, destroying property at Exmouth Cricket Club.Nine smashed windows at the club have forced the sporting side to pay for more repairs. Police are now appealing for information in an effort to catch the vandals.The Maer becomes a mecca for young people each summer, as groups gather at the family picnic area to party. A booze ban was placed on the area with a district council order in an effort to give police power to seize drinks from rowdy drunks. Police are keen to curb underage drinking, which is a problem at The Maer.Police have issued several past appeals to parents to keep an eye on their children - and urged them to do all they can to stop underage drinkers getting hold of booze.In previous incidents, the park benches and Exmouth Lawn Tennis Club facilities have been set on fire.Cricket club property has also been damaged along with amusements on the seafront and Exmouth Fun Park equipment.Police are now seeking information to help catch those behind the damage, which occured overnight on Saturday, January 12, and the following day.Witnesses should contact PCSO Chris Ball on (08452) 777444, quoting crime number KE/08/127.
