Residents in Feniton have been targeted by mindless vandals, who spray-painted houses and vehicles.

Families woke up on Saturday, January 21, to find that their homes and vehicles had been daubed with paint.

This has left families facing sleepless nights and wondering if and when the vandals would strike again.

Sabrina Bristow, 36, of Silverton Rise, was woken at 7.30am to find blue graffiti on the front and back of her house.

She said the whole experience was ‘unsettling’ for her three young children, all aged 10 and under.
