Car Park Vandalism

Sometime between 21/01/17 and 25/01/17 a car window was smashed in the Station Car Park Plough Road Great Bentley, where it had been parked for a few days with a flat battery.

If you park your vehicle in the Car Park, please do not leave valuables visible. If using a window suction for a sat nav, wipe away the telltale window mark and if possible take valuables with you or hide them out of sight.
