A reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the destruction of dozens of mature trees in a Fakenham park.

In some cases an inspection of the more mature tress has revealed that vandals used a saw to cut through the trunks and the attack, at the town's Queen's Road Millennium Park, is believed to have taken place on the same evening.

Fakenham town clerk Christine Harrow said that the attack, believed to have been carried out on Thursday evening, was "wanton destruction".

She said that those responsible do not give a thought to the cost of replacing the 28 tress and shrubs destroyed.

"The town council feels so strongly about this that is offering a reward leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible, said Mrs Harrow.
