School left with £20,000 bill after ball bearing vandal attack

The Express & Echo is reporting that an Exeter school has been left with a bill of over £20,000 after being targeted by vandals.

Police are appealing for information after 14 windows at Clyst Vale School in Broadclyst were damaged when ball bearings were fired at them between the 12th and 13th August.

The force said it appears ball bearings were fired at the panes of glass from either a sling shot or catapult.

Adding that the bill to repair the damage is likely to be over £20,000 which will leave the school with a very minimal amount of money over the next year for any further repairs, decorating or maintenance costs…

Attacks like this are so frustrating: money is tight enough without it being used up on things like this. Grrrr.
