Vandals attacked a playgroup in Sheringham damaging parts of the building and a wooden boat used by the children during play time.

Police are appealing for information about the attack, which happened between 2pm on Sunday March 8 and 8.30am on Monday March 9 at the centre on Cromer Road.

The yobs pulled down guttering and part of the drainage system as well as damaging the steering wheel of a wooden boat that the children play on.

It is the latest in a series of incidents of low-level damage and anti-social behaviour at the Ladybird playgroup over the last few months. It is thought the same group of people are responsible for all of the problems.
