Sgt Mumby-Croft went on: “I know many people now upload footage of offences onto social media seeking to identify offenders. Please however ensure if you do this, that you do so in addition to reporting the crime to Lincolnshire Police.

"We have officers on the team here who have many years experience of working in Sleaford and can work towards identifying offenders from such footage, as has been the case with this latest spate of damage.

"Knowing where these offences occur also helps us to target our patrols.”
