Police have appealed for information after a spate of car damages across Pendle, but predominantly in Nelson, over the course of last week.

Two hundred pounds of damage was caused to the rear and side of a silver Citroen parked in Hibson Road, Nelson, overnight on Saturday while deep scratches amounting to £100 were caused to a green Volvo parked in the same street on the same night.

Overnight between Friday and Saturday, offensive words were scratched into the paintwork of a car in Southfield Street, Nelson, leading to £1,000 in damage.

At around 1-30am last Friday, August 30th, windscreens of a BMW and Toyota were damaged amounting to £150 respectively when the vehicles were parked in Chatham Street, Nelson.

Overnight between Tuesday, August 27th and Wednesday, August 28th, acid was poured over an Audi A4 causing £800 of damage and in Clough Lane, Nelson, £1,000 of damage was caused to a Ford Kuga when something poured on to the paintwork caused it to blister and melt.

In Barnoldswick, £1,000 damage was caused to the side panel and door paintwork of a silver Peugeot parked in King Street overnight between Monday, August 26th and Tuesday, August 27th.

Police say enquiries are ongoing in relation to the spate of damages. Anybody with information is asked to call police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
