Flowers ripped up at Northumbria in Bloom town two weeks before judging day

The hard work of volunteers in Eston, on Teesside, has been disrupted not once, but five times in the last five weeks.

The Residents' Association maintains plant pots and flower displays all over the town, which cost thousands of pounds a year.

They have previously won five golds at Northumbria in Bloom. This year, flowers on Old Row have been ripped up twice - the latest just two weeks before judging day.
