Suspects hunted for 'series of criminal damage attacks'

Two men and a woman who went on a rampage through a Derbyshire town are being hunted by police.

The trio were travelling in a white transit van which smashed into another vehicle in Ray Street, Heanor, before driving off.

They then abandoned the van on Midland Road and approached a white Peugeot 208 in the car park of Tesco in the High Street, smashing the windscreen with a broken bollard.

The three suspects then went into the Market Hotel and allegedly threatened customers.

Anyone with information on the trio is asked to speak to Derbyshire Police.
