TEENAGERS have been arrested after a family home and a child's disability equipment was vandalised by youths.

As reported in the Warrington Guardian last week, Niketa Chin, 28, Tom Parker, 32, and their three children had their home in Densham Avenue trashed on November 2, just days after they had to move out due to severe flooding.

The three teenagers arrested in connection with the incident have been released under investigation pending further enquires.

Youths who broke into the Longford property destroyed the home and ripped out the bathroom, which had been specially adapted for Remy, Niketa and Tom's five-year-old son who has no movement from the waist down.

Warrington Guardian:

Sergeant Alex Reeves, of the problem solving team at Warrington Local Policing Unit, said: "This is an absolutely heartbreaking case of a family losing all their cherished possessions as a result of the mindless actions of a group of vandals.

"The family had already been forced to leave their home due to flooding and now they are facing the prospect of spending even more time in temporary accommodation while their house is repaired.

"We treat all incidents of this nature seriously and we a committed to doing all that we can to ensure that the people responsible are brought to justice.

Warrington Guardian:

"As part of our investigation we have now arrested an 18-year-old man and two girls, aged 16 and 17, and we are planning to make more arrests in the coming days."

The investigation remains ongoing and anyone with any information about the burglary is asked to contact Cheshire Constabulary on 101, quoting IML 555403.

Information can also be reported anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111, or online at www.cheshire.police.uk/contact/general-enquiries.
