Multiple car windows smashed by mindless vandal

Date published: 21 February 2019

Multiple car windows were smashed in a spree across Smithy Bridge and Milnrow between 10 and 11 February.

Car windows on Laurels Drive and Little Clegg Road in Smithy Bridge were smashed at around 10.30pm on 11 February before the vandal fled the scene.

Four cars were also damaged in a similar manner the night before on Fairway off Pennine Drive in Milnrow.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police confirmed: “12 vehicles have been reported as being damaged. It appears the offender has got out of a car before causing the damage and driving off, fleeing the scene.

“No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.”
