POLICE enquiries are still ongoing after 13 vehicles were damaged in Bransgore, including a first responder ambulance car.

The damage happened overnight on November 14 and 15 in Betsy Close, Brookside Road, Elmers Way, Hill Close, Rosehill Drive, Shackleton Square, Shearsbrook Close, and Tyrrells Court.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary said: "All initial lines of enquiry, including house-to-house visits, have taken place and police enquiries are ongoing at this moment in time to identify those responsible."

The wing mirror of the Bransgore Community First Responders’ ambulance car was smashed last month, which meant it was unable to be used to attend 999 emergency calls in the area. The car was parked near Burnt House Lane while the on-call volunteer responder was inside his house.

Community First Responders (CFRs) are volunteers who attend calls in their local area and provide basic life support care until the arrival of the ambulance service.

The ambulance vehicle is back on the road. Luckily, the vehicle was able to be repaired shortly after the incident and return to duty.

Mike Jukes, the group’s co-ordinator, said: “We were delighted to have the vehicle returned so promptly after South Central Ambulance Service’s (SCAS) Nursling workshop fitted the repair into its busy schedule. We are incredibly grateful to them. We are also grateful for all the messages of support from the local community, and a couple of donations made to help towards the costs of the repair, which the charity will have to meet.”
