CARS along a Wrexham street were left scratched in a vandalism attack.

Police are investigating the spate of damage caused to vehicles in Old Mold Road, Gwersyllt on Monday.

They have confirmed at least three cars were damaged, but it is believed there may have been more. The damage was discovered by residents on Monday morning.

One of the victims was John Bagnall, who runs a mobile food van business, ‘Baggy’s Bites’, on the street.

He discovered scratches had been caused to his Renault Laguna vehicle.

“My car already has scratches on so it is not as big an issue for me, although I could have done without it,” he said.

“But it is concerning that somebody has gone around doing this. I have heard quite a few residents have been affected and if you add up the total damage it could be a lot of money for people.

“I wasn’t aware at the time anything had happened until somebody pointed out the scratch.”

Cllr Arfon Jones, whose ward covers a section of Old Mold Road, said crime was rare on the road. “It is very unusual for something like this to take place,” he said.

“In the four and a half years I have been councillor I have not been aware of criminal damage taking place on the street.”

A spokesman for North Wales Police said: “At least three vehicles were damaged but investigations are ongoing.

“We are appealing for anyone with information to contact us on 101.”

The vandalism is believed to have occurred during Monday morning.

    Well that Councillor obviously doesn't listen or know anything about the street then does he as exactly the same thing happened a couple months back. It's children going up to the school based on the time it took place

    Cllr Arfon Jones says a lot about stuff that he knows nothing about greg. Last week it was the one way system in Stansty (not on his ward) and I'm sure if the Leader asked him, he'd provide a quote about the Duchess of Cornwall's topless pics
