Garden gift is wrecked by yobs
by David Simister

DRUNKEN yobs left a Banks woman “extremely distressed” after they damaged a garden ornament her late husband had made as a gift for her shortly before he passed away.

Officers for Lancashire Constabulary said they were investigating after a group of drunken people damaged a ornamental garden tub in the shape of a wishing well at a home on Hoole Lane, in an incident which took place at around 12.50am last Saturday morning (November 10).

The force said that the woman had been left distressed after the damage to the wooden tub, which her husband had made as a gift to her shortly before his death a year ago, and an appeal for more information about the incident has now been launched.

Officers are also investigating another incident of criminal damage which took place the day before, between 10pm and 11.59pm on Friday, November 9, when a reinforced pane of glass at Banks Leisure Centre, on Greaves Hall Lane, was kicked in and smashed.

If you have any information about either of these incidents get in touch with Lancashire Constabulary on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
