Police are investigating a wave of vandalism on cars in Bishop's Stortford – including another incident in which a vehicle was tipped onto its side.

The wanton damage happened in the Havers and Thorley Park areas overnight on Friday into Saturday (May 10-11).

In the worst case, a black Peugeot owned by a Thorley Park Sainsbury's worker was turned on its side at the junction of Norfolk Way and Kent Crescent. Pictures show shattered glass on the road.

It is the second car in a week to be tipped in the Vernon Court area – the other was a maroon Ford Fiesta – taking the total to four since last October.

There were also reports of cars in Cemetery Road and Norfolk Way having their wing mirrors ripped off.

In Honeybourne on the Thorley Park estate, at least three cars were similarly targeted.

On Hallowe'en last year, a silver Peugeot 107 belonging to 49-year-old Morna Edmonds was written off when it was pushed onto its side. An online GoFundMe appeal in aid of Morna started by Stortford family man Paul Middleton raised more than £1,000.

Ten days later, yobs left a distinctive white Vauxhall hatchback with blue stripes on its side in Elizabeth Road on the Havers estate.
