WHO are these stupid vandals that get perverted pleasure out of damaging and desecrating the streets of Great Dunmow after dark?

Litter, cans, bottles and takeaway containers are thrown onto the paths, often within feet of rubbish bins.

Buildings are damaged and graffiti sprayed to walls and fences. Shop windows are smashed and their twisted minds must get great pleasure out of destroying floral baskets, planters and also shrubs in municipal and private gardens.

An example occurred recently in The Maltings when a large blue hydrangea and other flowers were mindlessly smashed and the blooms strewn over the pavement and road.

Empty bottles and other debris are also regularly thrown into the Doctor's Pond. Why do they do it?

Can anything be done to stop these imbeciles from spoiling our town?
