Some of Newtown's most historic landmarks, along with other buildings and street furniture, have been vandalised in a spate of attacks.

Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council said it was concerned at the number of incidents and level of damage caused to some of its property.

Brisco House, Broad Street – The same window has been smashed on two occasions in March and May 2018.

The Pryce family mausoleum, St Mary’s Church – Graffiti to three sides of the structure on the evening of 7th June 2018
Riverside Bench – Fire damage to one of our recycled plastic picnic benches on the riverside path on 8th June 2018

Town Clerk, Ed Humphreys, said: “It is very disappointing that damage is being caused to notable historic landmarks of Newtown and leaving other general amenities unusable.

"Not only does it detract from the well-being of the town, it is a direct monetary cost to the people of Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn for repairs and increases in insurance premiums and an indirect cost by taking staff away from other duties.

"I hope people will report information to the police which might lead to the arrest of the perpetrators."

The town council is urging anyone with any information on the incidents to contact the police on 101.
