Cumbrian primary school targeted by vandals twice

A primary school in Cumbria has been vandalised for the second time in two weeks.

More than £1,500 worth of damage was caused in the attacks on St. Patrick's School in Workington.

The vandalism includes the removal of lead flashing from a roof and damage to windows and guttering, with the most recent incident occurring on Monday.

Plain-clothes police are being placed at the site to monitor anyone entering the grounds outside of school hours.

The school management is considering installing CCTV and additional security fencing.

Headteacher Sheryl Flack said although nothing had been stolen, the vandalism was a "real inconvenience".
