CRUEL vandals attacked disabled people's cars in a wrecking spree.
The attackers left a trail of damage to 18 cars in the Chickenley area of Dewsbury. Police think they deliberately targeted vehicles which had disabled stickers in them.
Chickenley community constable Pc Shaun Lewis said: "The majority of the cars belonged to people with disabilities. The vehicles had disabled stickers in their windows and seem to have been targeted.
"This has caused great distress to many people who rely on their vehicles a great deal, not to mention the expense of getting the cars repaired."
One of the victims, 67-year-old Barrie Pickles, had the windscreen on his Vauxhall Zafira smashed and his bonnet dented by a concrete slab.
He used to serve in the RAF and has been ill since he witnessed the nuclear bomb tests at Christmas Island, near Australia, in 1957. His disabilities include spinal and breathing problems and arthritis.
The vandalism took place between midnight on Friday and 3am on Saturday.
Damage included broken mirrors, windscreens and bodywork.
The attacks were carried out in Cedar Road, Maple Walk, Maple Road, Princess Street, Princess Road, Hazel Avenue and Syke Ings Close.
The suspects are a teenager, a boy of about 11 and two young girls. The teenager is white, 15 to 16, about 5ft 5in and slim. He wore a grey top with dark stripes on the sleeves.
