Vandals target Mylor school plants and bench

An act of “mindless” vandalism left a plant pot destroyed and bench badly damaged at Mylor Primary School this week.
The crime took place overnight on Friday, when someone trespassed on school grounds and caused an estimated £100 worth of damage to the equipment at the front of the school.
Investigating PCSO Chris Braddon, from Falmouth Police Station, said: “Just inside the gates there you have got a couple of wooden planters, filled with soil and plants.
“Someone has emptied one of them of all the soil and it’s been smashed to the point where it needs to be replaced. A picnic bench has also needed to be repaired because there’s quite a lot of damage to it.”
House to house enquiries have so far been unsuccessful and as there is no CCTV covering that area, the police are appealing for anyone who might have heard or seen anything.
PCSO Braddon said: “Obviously the school is pretty upset about it and it’s a primary school too, of all places.
“Whether or not it was someone who had a few too many beers, I don’t know, but it’s inconsiderate, it’s mindless and it’s frustrating.”
Anyone with any information about the playground vandalism is asked to contact Falmouth Police on 101 ref GP/12/2167.
