A large number of cars parked in Swindon had their tyres slashed over night. It happened in the early hours on vehicles parked between Swindon town centre and Old Town.
This is a large scale incident of criminal damage and one we are taking extremely seriously.
These offender(s) have been brazen in the sheer number of vehicles they have damaged early this morning.
Wiltshire Police has increased patrols in the area, with officers from the local Neighbourhood Policing Teams offering advice to any victims and detectives working on the investigation.
Witnesses are key to this investigation – anyone who saw anything between 2am and 5am this morning, no matter how small, should contact Wiltshire Police.
