Allotment sheds broken into
Allotments sheds plagued by thefts and damage have been attacked by vandals.
Five sheds were entered, doors were damaged and small items stolen at Mill Lane, in Enderby, on Saturday and Sunday.
In January, the site was attacked and the neighbouring community garden project badly damaged in the latest in a number of attacks in recent years. Plans are being drawn up to improve security to prevent future attacks.
Allotments spokesman Ashley Cox said the vandals had "climbed over from the golf course as usual and left their distinctive shoe prints".

He said: "They also left a hammer behind."
Mr Cox said the amount of damage caused was minimal compared to last time.
"We just don't understand the motivation behind it," he said.
Following the earlier attack, police organised a community meeting and County Hall promised to fund a new security fence to prevent attacks from the golf course.
Extra police patrols were also organised.
A police spokeswoman said there were five crimes reported last weekend for the Mill Lane allotments. They all involved sheds being entered or broken into.
People who might have seen suspicious activity over the weekend are asked to contact the police on 101.
