Appeal after Suffolk art studio vandalised

Several works by the well-known sculptor Stephen Hicklin were smashed during the break-in.

Vandals have caused tens of thousands of pounds worth of damage after breaking into an art studio in Saxmundham in Suffolk.

The incident took place sometime between Friday 10 May and Sunday 19 May at an art gallery on the High Street in the town.

Several works by the well-known sculptor Stephen Hicklin were smashed during the break-in.

He discovered the destruction when he returned to the studio on Sunday. Suffolk Police said the vandals had got in through a back window.

This act of sustained mindless vandalism, causing significant damage to valuable artwork and property is so disgraceful to see in our community. Enquires are continuing and I would urge anybody who has any information that could assist the investigation to call Police.

To reassure local residents and businesses we will continue to carry out pro-active patrols in the area.

– Sergeant Dan Peck, Suffolk Police
