VANDALS trashed a 101 Dalmations- themed scarecrow display and stole one of the dogs.

Linda Betchley was one of 14 Fingringhoe residents to recreate Disney scenes to raise money for St Andrew’s Church.

Yobs struck on Sunday night, trashing the Cruella de Vil figure, stealing one of the floral dalmations and driving into the rest of the display.

Mrs Betchley, of South Green Road, Fingringhoe, said: “It just shows the low mentality of people.

"There is simply no need for behaviour like this."

Gut wrenching to read of this brutal attack on the best efforts of young people to help an honest cause. But here's the difficult bit - don't blame the "jobs" - the trash who do this sort of thing are the result their "family" background. Who in my personal opinion, are the result of our weak law enforcement which confuses transgressors, and even encourages their miscreant behaviour.
