Parking machine smashed

Vandals have caused around £4,000 of damage to a parking machine in Gosport, less than a month after it was repaired following a similar attack.

The pay-and-display machine in Alver Valley East car park was smashed up over the bank holiday weekend, probably on Sunday night. The damage is believed to be the result of a failed attempt to get to the cash box.

Cllr Mark Hook, who leads Gosport Borough Council, said: "This machine had only come back into service less than a month ago. There are two machines in the car park and earlier, both of them were attacked and had to be repaired. Fortunately, this time only one was damaged.

"If anyone knows anything about this incident, please let our Streetscene team know on 08000 198598."
