Police seek helping in tracking vandals who targeted heritage railways

POLICE have re-issued an appeal for help in tracking vandals who have targeted the two heritage railways in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Just over a week ago graffiti was sprayed on two carriages at the Cheddleton-based Churnet Valley Railway, only days after a section of miniature railway was torn up at the Foxfield Railway near Blythe Bridge.

The Churnet Valley incident occurred sometime overnight between Saturday, April 7 and Sunday, April 8, only a few days after the Foxfield came under attack.

The two heritage railways attract many thousands of visitors to the district every year, providing a major boost to the local economy.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to contact Staffordshire Police on 101.
