MINDLESS yobs smashed wing mirrors off cars in a Billericay street- causing hundreds of pounds of damage.

Vandals targeted the cars as they were parked in Chantry Way between 2pm on Saturday and 11am on Sunday.

The wing mirrors were pulled off a green Volvo V40, a blue Jaguar S type, a blue Vauxhall Vectra, and a silver Citroen Xsara.

Investigating officer, Pc Keith Corry, said: "I really need to speak to anyone who may have seen or heard anything in the Chantry Way area that night so that I can catch the person responsible for this mindless act of vandalism.”

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact Pc Corry, or his colleagues at Basildon, on 101.
