Police investigating criminal damage at a school in Ramsgate are appealing for witnesses.

Kent Police was called at 7.02am on Thursday 11 January to a report that windows and lights had been smashed at Newlands Primary School in Dumpton Lane.


When officers arrived they also found that the bike shed had been damaged and all the windows on the school mini-bus had also been smashed. CCTV at the children’s centre on the same site had also been damaged.

Initial enquiries have established that nothing has been taken.

PC Jason Hills said: “We have conducted enquiries and we believe three men were seen in the area, all wearing dark coloured tracksuits.”

“This was a mindless act of vandalism, costing the school thousands of pounds so we would appeal to anyone who may have seen anything to get in touch.”
