Police in Hebden Bridge are appealing for information after a police Land Rover was painted silver.

It’s thought the incident occurred at some point between 9.30pm last night and 4.45am this morning in Royd Villas.

Neighbourhood Inspector John Simpson said: “Some people might find this funny but the extent of the damage means that this vital emergency vehicle will be off the road whilst it is repaired at a cost.

“It is a specialist vehicle used to access the more rural areas of Calderdale and as such is an essential vehicle for the local communities.”

Anyone who has any information about this incident is asked to contact Inspector Simpson via 101 quoting log number 138 of 11th October.
