Hull: Damage to cars on Ventnor Street and Falmouth Street

Police are investigating reports of a number of vehicles being damaged on Falmouth Street and Ventnor Street off Newland Avenue in Hull over the weekend.

So far they have recorded that 11 cars have been vandalised, with damage caused to wing mirrors, windscreens and windows.

Community Beat Manager PC Mellors said, “This has been a random act of vandalism causing hundreds of pounds worth of damage to the vehicles parked down Ventnor and Falmouth Street.

“As people have returned to their cars we have had a number of calls to report the damage and we have logged and will be investigating each incident as criminal damage.

“It is such a disappointing and mindless act.  At this time of year that last thing people want is to have to be paying to repair their damaged cars.

“If anyone has dash cam footage or CCTV that covers Ventnor or Falmouth Streets between midnight on Saturday 7 and 3am on Sunday 8 December we would like to hear from you.  If anyone knows who is responsible for this damage, please call us with the information so that we can deal with them appropriately.

“If anyone else has suffered damage to their cars and has not contacted us yet, please call us on 101 and report it.

“Local community police officers are aware of the level of damage caused and will be patrolling the area this evening speaking to the residents to provide advice and reassurance.”
