Cars and businesses vandalised in Ballymoney

Six cars and two businesses have been vandalised in Ballymoney.

It happened at some time overnight at Ballybrakes Industrial Estate. The cars had their windows smashed and windows were also broken at two premises.

Police believe there was no attempt to gain entry.

"This appears to be wanton destruction and achieves absolutely nothing other than to cause considerable inconvenience and expense," Inspector David Anderson said.

"For anyone to do this two days before Christmas, at a time when the vast majority of people are extending good wishes and goodwill is particularly difficult to understand."
