Fair Oak counts cost of wing mirror rampage


Fair Oak motorists have been left counting the cost of repairs after ten vehicles were damaged on Friday night September 10.

Police are appealing for information on the incidents which occurred in Fair Oak Road and Itchen Avenue between 7pm on Friday and 8am on Saturday September 11.

Wing mirrors were either ripped off the cars or damaged and ten other cars had their wing mirrors tampered with.

PC James Pieri said: “The action of those responsible has caused hundreds of pounds worth of damage to cars within a residential area.

“I would like to hear from anyone who has information about this incident. It may have been witnessed by members of the public walking home from local pubs or clubs or heard by local residents.”

This is the second outbreak of anti social behaviour in Fair Oak in a week. The previous Friday it was reported that a woman on the nearby Brookfields estate had been beaten up by a gang of yobs in an attempted robbery.

Last month a man walking his dog in Stoke Park Woods was shot by youths with an air rifle.

Earlier this week Hampshire Chief Constable Alex Marshall revealed up to 1400 police jobs could be going as services were reduced to bare minimum due to cuts in government funding.

Anyone with information about the damage to the cars is asked to contact PC James Pieri at Eastleigh police station on 101. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
