Do you recognise these people? Vandals wreck summer house for pensioners in Clifton
POLICE are appealing for information about vandals who damaged a summer house built by elderly people.
The residents of the Lark Hill retirement village, in Clifton, built the summer house on the site for bird watching.
PC Darren White said it had been attacked twice – first on the evening of Tuesday, November 20, and then again on Saturday.
He added: "It's a fantastic building and the guys in the workshop there have built it themselves. The residents use it for bird-watching and as a quiet place to go."

He said four people in tracksuits had been captured on CCTV.
He added: "Four lads have gone up there on the Tuesday evening in the pouring rain and they have smashed the place to smithereens.
"I want to appeal for anyone with information to contact either Crimestoppers or myself.
"Somebody out there will know who's done it. It was lashing it down with rain that night. They would have come in absolutely soaked through and covered in mud."
He added: "It's a despicable crime against people who do not deserve that sort of thing to happen to them at all."
A 67-year-old resident, who was too scared to be named, said: "The grandchildren get a lot of pleasure out of bird watching. It's a terrible shock and a real shame."
Anyone with information should call PC White on 07792 437 322 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
