New appeal over Pendle school vandalism

AN APPEAL for information has been renewed by police after a spate of problems with anti-social behaviour and damage at Barrowford County Primary School.

During the past month the school in Rushton Street has been subject to windows being broken, paint thrown into the playground and dog excrement from the dog bins thrown into the grounds of the school.

Sergeant Ben Hodgkinson from the Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “This is a problem which has been occurring for a number of weeks now. We have increased our patrols in the area as a result, but we need help from the public in identifying who the culprits are.

“Not only is this costing the school money, it causes nuisance and indeed potential danger to the children and staff who attend the school.

“I would urge anyone with any information to contact us and we will take positive and swift action.”

People with information can call police on 101.
