Cat's Eyes Vandalised in Bourton

Police in the Cotswolds are appealing for information after 35 sets of cat’s eyes were ripped out of the road on a section of the A429 in Bourton-on-the-Water.

The incident occurred at around 2.50am this morning (Thursday, May 22) just before the set of traffic lights at the turn off for Bourton-on-the-Water, as you approach from Cheltenham.

Two youths, believed to be around 15 years old, were seen ripping cat’s eyes out of the road and throwing them around by the junction.

One of the youths is described as having black hair and a blue top.

The damage is estimated at £1000.

A police spokesman said: “This was a senseless act which shows a complete disregard for the safety of road-users and pedestrians alike. We appeal for anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward.”

Anybody with any information is asked to contact police on 0845 090 1234, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting incident 60 of May 22.
