Council "saddened" by vandalism to Bordon bus stop

Whitehill Town Council are appealing for witnesses after vandals targeted a bus stop in Bordon.

In a Facebook post the authority said it was saddened by the incident, which happened at the stop close to the junction of Budds Lane and Camp Road.

They don't however know when over the weekend it happened and are asking anyone with information to come forward.

Pictures from the scene show two panels had been vandalised with each of them completely shattered, leaving glass strewn all over the pavement.

The mess has since been cleared up, but the council added it would be them fitting the bill to dispose of the waste and to repair the damage.

In a statement Whitehill Town Council said:

"The Council was saddened to find that over the weekend the bus shelter at the junction of Budds Lane/Camp Road (northbound) had two panels vandalised.

"Our Litter Collector was tasked to clear up; but it is the Council that has to meet the cost of glass disposal and sourcing new panels to replace the missing items.

"Anyone who witnesses vandalism to bus shelters is urged to ring 101 immediately and report the activity, in order to help keep our town safe and tidy for residents."
