Vandals have damaged a new bus shelter installed on the A47 Necton junction, near Swaffham – less than two weeks after it was opened.
The bus shelter on the busy eastbound side of the junction had one of its Perspex panels kicked out.
It took the parish council several years to commission and install new bus shelters on both sides of the road, rescuing waiting passengers from the rain and splash back from passing traffic.
The Necton Parish Clerk, Gabrielle Joyce, said: 'My heart sank to my boots when I was told of the damage, by one of our councillors, Joe Sisto.
'It was probably done over the weekend and possibly just a result of some boisterous play acting rather than intention to damage, but it still means we have to make a repair. Thankfully, it hasn't taken the shelter out of service and has still provided protection to waiting passengers.'
