Police are appealing for information after a vehicle caused damage to Hartley Wintney Cricket Club.

It's reported a vehicle drove on the cricket pitch at Mount Pleasant at around 3.30am on Monday, causing extensive damage to the lawn. The vehicle left the pitch onto the High Street.

It's believed to be a 4 x 4, possibly silver with yellow headlights.

A second incident happened between midnight and 6am on Wednesday, and though a vehicle wasn’t seen, the tyre tracks left were similar to the first incident.

“‘This is the second incident of damage on the cricket ground this week. A vehicle making a lot of noise in the middle of the night is likely to have attracted someone’s attention and we are keen to hear from anyone who has spotted any suspicious activity.

“We have increased our patrols in the area and would ask that anyone with CCTV that may assist us, reviews any footage and contacts us if they spot the vehicle described”.

– Inspector Olga Venner
