'Mindless' vandals have attacked Exmouth's bandstand for a third time.

And it will cost East Devon District Council (EDDC) ‘several hundred pounds’ to repair the damage.

Vandals tried to smash a memorial park bench through an inch-thick plate glass window on the Garth Gibson Stage in the town’s Manor Gardens at around 9pm, on Monday, December 18.

After the attack, the bench was left leaning up against the window.

The bandstand – an essential part of the Exmouth Festival – was a target for vandals in July this year and in 2015.

“It is very disappointing that again, mindless vandalism is spoiling this community asset,” said an EDDC spokesperson.

“We’re arranging repairs, which like earlier in the year will cost several hundred pounds. We would urge anyone with information relating to the thoughtless vandals who did this to contact us or the police.”
