ALLOTMENTS in Gallowstree Common were targeted by vandals during an early morning raid.

Five plots and a shed at the site, in Horsepond Road, were damaged on September 30 between midnight and 7.30am.

A claw and club hammer was also taken from a shed but was left elsewhere in the site. Police have taken it away for DNA testing.

Philip Collings, parish clerk for Sonning Common Parish Council, which owns the land, said it was a minor incident and “annoying more than anything else”.

He said: “There were a couple of places where a bit of fence was broken and a shed window was smashed.

“Someone got hold of a hammer from one of the sheds but left it. As far as we know no one lost anything serious.”
