Window cleaner Jamie Parr, his partner Rachel and their three children were asleep at their West Park Street home when the damage was caused.

CCTV cameras at Rumbles Fish Bar opposite the couple’s home picked up the culprit at 3.04am on Saturday 22.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to come forward to trace the man who caused hundreds of pounds worth of damage.

Ms Parr said: “The CCTV shows a man walking from Station Road down West Park Street. He walked past our house and came down the side of our property.

“He is down there for about 40 seconds and you can hear the sound of smashing.

“He then runs out and the front window is smashed as he runs out. A black car drives past as he runs towards Station Road so there is hopefully at least one witness there.”

The family heard nothing during the night but woke up to find the vandalism.

They then spent nearly three hours with the owners of Rumbles Fish Bar looking through the CCTV film to trace images to take to police.
