Vandals destroy light display

Youngsters in Dereham seem to have forgotten their Christmas cheer and have vandalised a retired couple's light display.

A retired couple's Christmas lights display has been vandalised.

Dennis and Mandy Firmage, who live in the Toftwood area of Dereham, spent all of last week

putting together their light display only for part of it to be torn down by unruly youngsters as soon as it was finished.

Mr Firmage, 63, a retired BT engineer, said he really enjoyed putting up the display, which they have added to for the last 15 years and has an estimated value of £3,000.

He finished the display at 4.30pm on Saturday and it was destroyed in the early hours of Sunday. Police are investigating the incident.
