£100 reward to catch vandals who attacked Doddington's Christmas tree
A £100 reward is up for grabs in a Fenland village after vandals targeted its Christmas tree.
The culprit had sawn through most of the tree's trunk and left the high winds of Wednesday night to do the rest, meaning Doddington villagers awoke to a felled tree on yesterday (Thursday) morning.
Local man Philip Cowley was quick to put up the £100 reward and urged others to add to the total in a bid to catch those responsible.
Posting on Doddington's Facebook page he wrote: "If anyone else wishes to add to the reward, please contact me. If anyone has any information, please contact the Christmas Lights Committee and the police.
"If any information does come to light, I would like to invite the Christmas Lights Committee and/or the police to decide who the reward should be given to."
In the meantime members of the Christmas Lights Committee were quick to act and managed to have the tree back up by lunch time ready to shine bright again yesterday evening.
Anyone with information should contact police on 101.
