A resident said they heard a chorus of cheering and laughter after the damage had been done and saw a group stood outside the nearby Union Court .

They said "It's not the first time incidents like this have happened on this road.

"Back at the end of October some 'sweethearts' set fire to some recycling bins on the adjoining Frances Havergal Close, which exploded aerosols and glass bottles much to the distress of local residents.

"Since moving in in May last year I had my car keyed causing £500 worth of damage."
