Vandals have driven a golf buggy across Plymouth Argyle's Home Park pitch, leaving marks in the turf.

Police said the vandals broke in on Friday night and "hot-wired" the maintenance buggy before tearing up and down the pitch.

The League Two side were playing away to Sheffield United on Saturday in the FA Cup and the next home game is not until 20 December.

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

A spokesman for the Devon and Cornwall force said: "They were doing turns on the pitch.

"They have gone up and down the pitch but fortunately the buggy is pretty light so the damage was superficial."
