Vandals strike twice more on Ryleys Lane


Motorists and local residents are urged to be vigilant because another two cars have had their rear windows smashed whilst parked on Ryleys Lane today (Monday, 13th November).

Both vehicles were parked on the stretch of road between the junction with Redesmere Drive and the entrance to the car park.

The incidents occurred some time between 8.30am and 1pm and have been reported to police.

The first incident reported to the police occurred on Friday, 25th August, at which time reader's reported seeing at least two other vehicles parked on the same stretch with rear windows smashed.

Then Sarah Cairns contacted to inform us that her rear window had been smashed on Monday, 30th October, whilst she was at work, and the same thing had happened to her old car whilst parked on Ryleys Lane back in May.

Sarah then noticed a vehicle had been damaged in the same way as hers whilst leaving work on Friday, 10th November.

As far as we aware no items have been stolen from any of these vehicles.

Anyone with any information about this incident, or any previous ones which were not reported to the police, should contact Cheshire Police on 101.

Something needs to be done! With Christmas coming up nobody needs the extra worry/cost to replace the rear window of their car.
Maybe the council need to think about CCTV in the area, I know I no longer feel safe walking up that road on my own. If there is someone out there causing damage to people's vehicles in this way who knows what else they are capable of!

Hi Amy,

I believe that you are correct re. CCTV. Sadly that has often been suggested in the past but, as far as we know, has not been used.
Anyone know why not?

Hi, my car rear window got smashed yesterday 14/11/17. I parked on ryleys lane to pick my children up for the primary school and when we got back someone had made a dent in the window so as my daughter shut her passenger door the whole of the back window caved in, luckily she nor my 2yr old son were hurt by any flying glass. This is really serious as children could get hurt. Whoever is doing this is not right in the head. I have reported it to the police and they confirmed my car was the 5th one (to be reported) and they are looking into it, however I got a call from the police today to say they are treating it seriously and urgently as it is happening near a school. Nobody needs this, especially before Christmas.

It looks as though someone resents people parking there, and hopes this sort of behaviour will deter them. The perpetrator would seem to reside not too far away.

Saw some fresh glass this morning, but it was on the single yellow lines, nearer the crossing, you are not suppose to park on them.

Evening all !!! Please excuse me for being flippant , but this criminal activity is rather " Midsomer Murders " .... ( God forbid ) .... But surely .... In broad daylight ??? This needs to be addressed immediately before someone may be hurt . We live in a beautiful , sociable village and as such this un-sociable ( actually criminal ) behaviour needs to be punished .....
