Police area appealing for witnesses after vandals damaged train carriages at Swanage Railway.

The offenders damaged three railway carriages with a large amount of graffiti at Swanage railway station on Station Approach. The incident took place between midnight and 6am on Saturday 15th March, with officers urging anyone with information to come forward.

Sergeant Jon McCarthy of Purbeck police said: “This crime has caused a vast amount of expense and inconvenience to the railway company which is predominantly run by volunteers for the benefit of the public.

“This crime is extremely distressing for them and they face hundreds of hours of restoration work to put this right and could not have come at a worse time of year with East just around the corner.

“I have released three images of the graffiti in the hope that someone will have knowledge about those responsible, I urge nay witnesses or anyone with information to come forward as soon as possible.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting crime number C:14:C:10526.
