POLICE have launched another appeal after a town was hit by vandals over the weekend.

As previously reported, on Monday, Sturminster Newton Town Council said that there were a few incidents of vandalism in the town over the past weekend.

Officers are now appealing for witnesses after a set of public toilets were damaged in Ricketts Lane Recreation Ground and on Station Road.

The town council said as a result of the damage caused, it was forced to close toilets at Ricketts Lane Recreation Ground and on Station Road.

Police launched an appeal yesterday after a banner with the Ukrainian flag and the word 'welcome' written on it was torn down over the same weekend.

A spokesman for North Dorset Police said: "Over the weekend of the 21st May the public toilets in Ricketts Lane recreation ground (Occurrence 55220082004) and Station Road (Occurrence 55220083634) were damaged.
