A police Land Rover has been spray painted silver by vandals in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire.
The authorities are now appealing for information following the criminal damage incident, which took place sometime between 9.30pm last night and 4.45am this morning on Royd Villas.
The vehicle is used to access rural areas in an emergency, and will be out of service while the act of vandalism is rectified.
Neighbourhood Inspector John Simpson said: “Some people might find this funny but the extent of the damage means that this vital emergency vehicle will be off the road whilst it is repaired at a cost.
“It is a specialist vehicle used to access the more rural areas of Calderdale and as such is an essential vehicle for the local communities.”
Anyone who has any information about this incident is asked to contact Inspector Simpson via 101 quoting log number 138 of 11th October.
Since you are here

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
