Police investigating a spate of vandalism and criminal damage in Narborough have arrested two more people.

A 17-year-old and 15-year-old were arrested on Tuesday in connection with a number of incidents in the Leicester Road area of the village.

A 16-year-old was also arrested on Monday evening.

All three youths arrested have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

It follows reports from residents that cars and windows of properties were damaged on Monday.

Sergeant Mike Cawley, of Blaby police, said: "We are extremely disappointed with the behaviour of some youths who were congregating in the area on Monday evening.

"There were a number of reports of thoughtless damage, which we are taking very seriously."

Sgt Cawley said the police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the damage, adding that officers were aware of previous problems with anti-social behaviour in the village.

"We have a number of lines of inquiry to follow up and several names have been provided to us," he said.

"We are in the process of speaking to these people but would urge anyone who was involved or in the area at the time to come forward.

"Plain clothes police officers have been patrolling alongside uniformed officers at times and locations identified as having suffered from incidents of anti-social behaviour.

"Groups of youngsters are gathering in the area, but this needs to be balanced with the fact not all young people are there to commit anti-social behaviour. Any groups seen gathering in the area causing a nuisance are being dispersed."

Sgt Cawley urged the public to report further incidents of anti-social behaviour.

Anyone with information should call the police by dialling 101.
