A POLICE car was attacked by vandals while it was parked at the front of Fakenham police station.
Damage was caused to the windscreen and front passenger window of the vehicle between 3.35 and 3.50am on Sunday.
The vandalism is being investigated by police officers.
Supt David Marshall, officer responsible for north Norfolk, said: “Vandalism and damage to police vehicles is actually an offence against the community as it prevents officers from responding to emergencies and helping members of the public.”
Supt Marshall said that, as with all crimes in the north Norfolk area, criminal damage was treated with utmost seriousness and dealt with accordingly.
Vandals also struck at Fakenham Cricket Club in the early hours of Sunday.

One hundred and twenty wine glasses were smashed outside the clubhouse after a changing room had been broken into. The incident happened between 2am and 7am, and officers were investigating the crime.
Club vice-chairman Geoff Saunders said: “They got into the home dressing room and smashed up a till which they obviously thought contained money, but it didn't. They went into a marquee, took 120 wine glasses and smashed them against the outside building. In the marquee they got a big bottle of tomato sauce and squirted it everywhere.”
He said the incident happened on Sunday between 2am, after a big social event at the club had ended, and 7am.
It took a major clean-up operation before the annual President's Day took place later on Sunday. “We were not going to be beaten,” said Mr Saunders.
