VIDEO: Arrest after man cuts down CCTV pole with angle grinder in Holme Wood



A MAN has been arrested after a video surfaced online showing a male using what appears to be an angle grinder to cut down a lamppost - less than 12 hours after it was put up.

The video shows a male using the power tool to cut down the lamppost, which also had surveillance cameras fitted to it, in Broadstone Way, Holme Wood.

The incident happened at around 10.20pm on Wednesday night outside Holme Wood Library.

In the video, the male can be seen using the power tool to cut around the metal post around a metre up from its base as traffic passes by in the road.


Councillor Alan Wainwright (Labour, Tong) said he is "absolutely appalled" by the incident.

He said: "I have spoken to police and I am demanding these people are brought to book.

"The CCTV was put up at lunchtime yesterday, and in fact when the workmen were putting the cameras up they were threatened by a young lad and the police were involved then. Police have been involved from it being erected to it being chopped down.

"The cameras were put up in case of any incidents to try and catch whoever was involved on film.
