Police in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and information after a criminal damage spree in the town.

Officers have released an image of three boys they would like to speak with.

Around 15 beach chalets along The Esplanade had their windows smashed in the early hours of Sunday 21 October.

These include damage to car and house windows and graffiti sprayed on the side of a building – all in the Greenhill and Melcombe Regis areas.

Police Constable Matt Lydford, of Weymouth police, said: “These are cases of mindless criminal damage which have caused untold upset to a number of victims.

"I am very keen to speak to the boys pictured as they may have information which will assist in our investigation.

“One of the teenage boys has a very distinctive two tone jumper on, while the other in the red hooded top has a yellow drawstring bag on his back".
