VANDALS have damaged ornamental plant tubs outside Dewsbury Town Hall, spilling flowers and soil onto the street.
The first attack on the planters was discovered just days after Yorkshire in Bloom judges visited Dewsbury to view the town’s entry for the spring competition.
The vandals struck again by pushing over the remaining planters.
Assistant town centre manager Viv Edmonds said it was sadly not the first time planters had been damaged. She said: “It’s really disappointing but our policy is not to be dispirited and if it happens we’ll just put it back and carry on.
“There’s a lot of money going into the planting this year from Dewsbury Area Committee and I’m sure they’ll be disappointed by people trying to spoil it because we’re trying to make the town look brighter and more attractive.”
