Vandals damage Age UK charity's minibus in third attack at Leicester car park
Vandals have damaged one of Age UK's minibuses in the latest of a series of attacks on the charity's vehicles.
Windows of a minibus belonging to Age UK Leicester Shire and Rutland were smashed while it was parked at a car park in Yeoman Street, Leicester, between 5pm on Wednesday and 7am on the following day.
The contents of a first-aid kit were scattered around inside, but nothing was stolen.
For the charity the damage, estimated at £800, could not have been caused at a worse time.

Transport manager Trevor Mills said: "We try to have a vehicle spare in case of emergencies but with this out of action we will have a very difficult job trying to fit everything in."
An Age UK bus was destroyed by arsonists during last summer's disorder.
A second vehicle was taken out of action last month when it was sprayed with graffiti.
Mr Mills does not believe the charity is being targeted deliberately. "It is just mindless people," he said.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the attack come forward. Call 101.
