A CCTV camera at the Recreation Ground in Fordingbridge was vandalised.

It happened on September 10. and police say officers are investigating the incident. 

A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary said: "At some time between 6.30pm and 6.45pm on 10 September damage was caused to a CCTV camera at the recreation ground in Fordingbridge.

"The matter is under investigation and any with information should call police on 101 quoting 44210374297."

Fordingbridge Town Council installed the cameras earlier this year after two break-ins at the recreation ground site at the end of January while work was being carried out to refurbish the changing room facilities at the pavilion.

Speaking about the incident of vandalism during a meeting of the town council's amenities committee, Cllr John Mouland, who chairs that committee, said: "It was very frustrating."

The meeting heard that the CCTV camera had been pulled off its fixing.

Measures are being looked at to prevent any more damage to the cameras and that footage captured would be passed onto the police.
