Witnesses are being sought after the vehicles were all damaged overnight between Saturday and Sunday, February 4/5.

Two vehicles left in a car park in Whapload Road, Lowestoft were targeted. The right hand side rear door window of a Volvo estate was smashed at sometime between 5.30pm on Saturday and 6am on Sunday, and between the same times a suspect gained entry into a Dacia Duster motor vehicle, smashing the passenger side window of the vehicle, before entering the vehicle with the windscreen damaged from within.

In Queens Road, Lowestoft, between 8pm and 8am, a police spokesman said: 'An unknown party has scratched two vehicles - a VW Golf and a Ford Fiesta – all the way around the bodywork using an unknown tool, while they were securely parked outside a residential address.'

Overnight in Holllingsworth Road, the front windscreen of a Ford Focus C-Max was smashed.
