Motorists' nightmare as vehicle vandalism attacks rise by a quarter in West Yorkshire


REPORTS of vehicle vandalism made to West Yorkshire Police rose by a quarter in the three years to 2016, new research has revealed.

The 25 per cent jump was - along with Hertfordshire Police - the second highest rise among the 37 forces which provided data to RAC Insurance from the 43 forces across England and Wales.

The highest spike of vandalism was recorded by Greater Manchester Police which recorded a 37 per cent increase in reports received.

Of the forces to respond with comparable data, a total of 24 saw an increase in vandalism from 2013 to last year.


West Yorkshire’s rise of 25 per cent was well above the national average increase recorded over the three year period of ten per cent.

This equated to an increase from 191,000 vehicles being vandalised across England and Wales in 2013 to a total of 210,000 last year.

The most common incidents included criminal damage such as smashed windows, slashed tyres, and broken windscreen wipers.

The RAC said it believed that the actual figure for vandalism reports was likely to be “considerably higher,” suggesting that many motorists did not report damage as they feared it would cause their insurance premiums to soar.
