TRACTORS and trees were damaged by vandals in a village near the Herefordshire and Worcestershire border last month.

Police were called on June 9 and 10 to reports that two tractors and an apple orchard had been damaged on Halfkey Road in Storridge.

PC Dane Roleston-Lowe said: "Unfortunately substantial damage has been caused to two tractors and a number of trees within a family businesses orchard in Storridge.

"We are re-appealing for information to see if anyone witnessed any suspicious activity around the area during the evening of June 8 to the early hours of June 9 and again during the evening of June 9 to the morning of June 10.

"This is an unprovoked attack on a family run business that has resulted in considerable loss and inconvenience.

"Our specialist rural crime officer has visited the victims and offered prevention advice on how to protect their business from being a future target.

"We are working closely with the victim and hope to find those that are responsible soon."

The owners of the orchard are offering a private reward of £500 to anyone with information that leads to finding those responsible.

If you saw any unusual suspicious activity in the area overnight on both Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June, contact West Mercia Police on 101 quoting 171s 090619."
