Pc Joel Finney, said: "This behaviour is irresponsible and criminal. Although the damage caused to the vehicles is not extensive, it leaves drivers with the expense and inconvenience of having to change a tyre.

"I would urge residents to keep an eye out for unusual or suspicious behaviour and to report any incidents of this nature to the police."
