POLICE have released a CCTV image of a vandal who damaged cars in Atherton.

The vandal smashed the wing mirrors of a black Renault Clio and a Citreon Saxo in the Liscard Street area between 2am and 11.30am on December 16.

Police have now issued a CCTV still of the suspected offender and are appealing to anyone who recognises him to come forward.

It is unknown if the vandal struck anywhere else.

Police Sergeant Darren Agnew said: "Whoever is responsible should be ashamed.

"They clearly have no regard for anyone else's property.

"We do not know if this man targeted any other cars that night but if your vehicle was vandalised in any way on that evening, then please let us know."
