The rear offside window of a vehicle on Featherston Drive was found smashed. The incident is believed to have happened between the 4th and 7th January 2022 (probably on the night of the 6th).

Report of a smashed window to an empty property on Sketchley Road. This incident currently has an unknown timeframe. It does not appear entry has been gained nor has  anything been taken.
