POLICE are appealing for information after taxis parked overnight at a nursing home in Wombwell had their tyres slashed.

A fleet of cars belonging to Wombwell firm J and M Taxis were damaged sometime between Saturday, September 5 and Sunday, September 6.

This caused around £500 worth of damage.

The taxis were left overnight in a car park at Parklands Nursing Home on Park Street.

WABer Lisa Swallow, who is a director at J and M, said: "We have permission to park at the nursing home and have done for many years."

A witness reported seeing a man in a dark-coloured hooded top and dark shorts running from away from the car park at around 6.10am on September 6.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 101 quoting incident number 355 of Sunday 6 September 2015.
