A LOCAL cricket club has been left with a hefty bill after vandals damaged equipment.

Players at Leverington Cricket Club, based at Leverington Sports and Social Club on Church Road, were furious to discover the damage done to cricket covers, which will take about £2,500 to fix.

Vandals slashed the white covers, which are used to protect the wickets, and jumped on some of the metal frames, bending them out of shape.

The matter has been reported to police and anyone with information is asked to call 101.
