The two men entered the front of the car wash and pierced holes in liquid containers, causing the contents to empty.

They also caused damage to a canopy, cut vacuum pipes at various intervals and set-off a fire extinguisher before fleeing.

The estimated value of the damage caused is £6,650.

One man wore baggy tracksuit bottoms and top, light coloured trainers and a covering over his face.

The other wore light coloured trainers and was also wearing a face covering.

Anyone with any information should contact PC Glenn Perkins at Ipswich police on 101, quoting IE/14/1703, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
