Police are appealing for information for the vandalism incident at Westleigh Cricket Club, which took place overnight on Tuesday

A North Devon cricket club has suffered another setback after vandals wrecked their facilities.

Almost every pane of glass in Westleigh Cricket Club's pavilion was smashed overnight on Tuesday, with four sliding doors and three other windows destroyed.

Police are investigating the incident, which happened on the same evening vandals smashed the glass at Johns of Instow's shop.

Officers have not confirmed if the two incidents are linked.

Westleigh captain, James Starkey, said: "It was only a few years ago that someone decided that they wanted to burn it down, and now, someone has decided to smash all of the windows.

"It's upsetting that anyone would want to do this, and even more disappointing to happen to such a small club who struggle for funds without having to fix problems like these.

"As a club we're indebted to the hard work of a small number and for them to see the ground in this way is the most disappointing thing of all.

"The vandalism is completely mindless and in such a small community you'd hope that someone would know something.

"So if anyone has any information, please do let me or someone from the club know."
