TWO telephone boxes and a bus shelter were defaced in Salisbury city centre.

Now Wiltshire Police is appealing for help to find those responsible for the criminal damage.

The first incident, officers say, occurred at 11.26pm on July 25 when a "group of youths" approached the telephone kiosks in the Cheesemarket.

Two of the group then used marker pens to draw graffiti on the windows.

A further incident occurred on July 27 just after midnight at the bus shelter in Castle Street.

In a bid to find those responsible, CCTV has been released.

A spokesperson said: "This footage also shows a number of people who were in the areas at the time and may have information to help us."

Community Coordinator PC Jack Billington, added: "To some people this may seem insignificant but to damage property in this way is a criminal offence and we must investigate.

"We are conducting pulse patrols in the area and following this appeal we hope that the lads who are responsible for these incidents will come forward and contact us.

"As part of our Summer Demand Campaign we are asking parents/guardians to ensure that they know where their children are and what they are doing, we understand that this can be difficult but we all have to work together in order to tackle youth crime."

Inspector Pete Sparrow said: "We are experiencing a number of issues with this group and would appreciate the public coming forward with any information. We don't want to criminalise these youths but they must understand that this anti social behaviour is not acceptable and they will have to face the consequences."

If you have any information regarding the identity of those pictured, contact PC Billington on 101 quoting reference 54190076918.
