Anger as Buttershaw cricket club is attacked again
A crime-stricken cricket club has been hit by vandals who smashed their way through a brick wall for the second time in two months.
The latest attack on Westwood Park Cricket Club in Buttershaw ’s Skylark Avenue saw yobs batter a hole through a garage wall, which had only just been repaired following a burglary in June.
At the time, the Telegraph & Argus reported how thieves took a £400 strimmer. During this week’s incident nothing was taken, but volunteers at the club say it has suffered so many break-ins over the past four years its insurers will no longer cover it.
Club committee member Michael Haycock said: “It’s so frustrating.”
Police are investigating the latest attack, which is believed to have happened between Monday evening and 3.30pm on Wednesday.
Witnesses should contact police on 101.
