A GANG of youths are believed to be responsible for a spree of vandalism over the weekend that left at least 10 car wing mirrors damaged.

Residents in Bromley Cross woke on Sunday morning to find their cars had been targeted.

It is believed the cars were kicked as several were found with shoe marks on them.

Vehicles parked in Back Turton Road East and surrounding areas were affected and a group of youths were seen on CCTV in the area.

The incidents are believed to have taken place from around 7pm up to midnight.

As well as the street behind Turton Road, cars have also been reported damaged near Bromley Cross train station and towards the centre of the village.

Police said they were aware of the reports and were investigating.

Local councillor David Greenhalgh said: “Police have been looking at all the CCTV from businesses and shops in that area to see if we can see people going into the back street, and some residents have sent them footage, but there are no faces visible.

“Bromley Cross councillors will be meeting the police this week to look at possible sightings and to see if we can put our case for CCTV to be installed in the area.”

One resident whose car was targeted said she saw between 10 or 15 other vehicles damaged.

She added that residents were 'upset and angry'.

Cars were found damaged all along the back street, which runs adjacent to the main road.

People took to social media to warn each other about what had happened and its believed the cost to repair all the cars damaged could run into thousands of pounds.

Charlotte Connor, aged 23, who lives in Turton Road, said her car was missed but neighbours on either side had their wing mirrors damaged on Saturday night.

She said: "There were quite a few that were done. It is quite a long stretch of the road.

"People have been saying there is CCTV showing four youths on it.

"There doesn't seem to be any footage of them doing it but they look to have been the only ones about at the time.

"Bromley Cross is getting a lot worse than it was for anti-social behaviour. With social media being available, people are putting it on there and you are hearing about it more."

Yesterday, a number of cars, including a Jaguar, had not been repaired following the spree, with parts of wing mirrors missing and others taped up.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "The local officers there are aware of a number of reports and are looking into it."

Anyone with information or whose car was targeted and has not reported it can do so by contacting 101.
