Windows at the Hitchin Rugby Club clubhouse were damaged in a spate of "unacceptable" criminal damage earlier this month.

A double-glazed window at the clubhouse on Old Hale Way, Hitchin was smashed between 11pm on Thursday, July 14 and Friday, July 15.

This followed an incident at around 12.30am on Monday, June 7 when another window was also smashed.

PC Martin Barringer, of Hertfordshire Constabulary's North Herts Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: "This kind of anti-social behaviour in our community is unacceptable and leaves the club with an unnecessary repair bill.

"I would like to hear from anyone who witnessed either of these incidents or has any information about them to get in touch."
