CAMPAIGNERS whose car and house were targeted by vandals said the cost of the damage could rise to more than £8,000.

Patrick and Liz Mcginley were at home in Great Harwood when their front window was smashed in on Sunday, August 27.

Two cars parked on the front drive were also smashed up.

The pair believe they were targeted because of Mr Mcginley's campaigning on local issues.

The 65-year old, who is the chairman of the Hyndburn Conservative Association, said he believes another house in Clayton was targeted on the same day.

He said: "The estimated value of the damage to our home and cars is expected to be about £8,000 or more owing to the bad damage to the cars.

"We understand there was another attack at around the same time when a car and porchway were damaged which, in my opinion, are linked.

"We are recovering from our ordeal and want to thank the people of Great Harwood for their best wishes."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
