Sergeant Kelly Palmer, from the Community Beat Team at Lincolnshire Police, said: “This is mindless damage and makes what was a newly refurbished area look terrible. If this is what some people call fun, then I feel sorry for them.

“I am certain that those who were in the area at the time were not all involved in the damage but will know who is. I ask that you consider your moral and civil position on this and contact us with the names of who is responsible.

“As part of our investigation I know there were a number of people in the area and appeal to anyone who saw anything to get in touch. We’d especially like to hear from drivers, riders or anyone who has dashcam or mobile footage of those involved.”
