Four cars in the same Bury St Edmunds street were ‘severely damaged’ last week – and police believe two of them could be the result of a racially motivated hate crime.

The vehicles were parked at two separate addresses in Manning Road, on Moreton Hall, when they were scratched ‘severely’ on their windows and bodywork.

On Saturday police received reports of two cars being vandalised on a driveway in Manning Road, which is thought to have happened between 9pm on Thursday and 6.30am on Friday.

A police spokeswoman said: “Following a conversation with the victim, the incident has been logged as a criminal damage crime with a hate marker as there’s the possibility it could have been racially motivated.”

Police received reports of two more cars vandalised nearby between 6.45pm on Thursday and 6.30pm on Friday, which have not been given a racial marker.

Anyone with information should call 101 quoting crime reference 37/41900/16.
