A green Suzuki Vitara, a blue Hyundai I10 and a red Hyundai I20 in Upper Barnston Road were damaged. A black London taxi in Stambridge Road was also damaged.

The criminal damage all happened between 8pm on Monday, January 13, and 9am on Tuesday, January 14.

Investigating officer, Pc Nikki Heath, said: “This really is a mindless act of vandalism which has caused a lot of unnecessary upset and disruption to the lives of the victims involved. I need to speak to anyone who may have witnessed what happened, or anyone with information.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact Pc Heath, or her colleagues at Clacton, on 101. Alternatively, call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
