Following the report of vandalism, PC Michelle Hargrave identified the two female offenders after making enquires in the area.

The two girls identified were visited and admitted to causing the damage.

The owner of the property was consulted and agreed to a restorative justice approach that saw the two girls together with some hot soapy water and scrubbing brushes remove the mess they had caused. The girls subsequently visited the owner and offered their apology.
