Police are appealing for information after vandals tried to set alight four postboxes in the Ribble Valley.

Officers believe the offenders put fireworks inside the postboxes in Gallows Lane and Lane Ends, Ribchester, Hesketh Lane, Chipping and Inglewhite Road, Inglewhite.

The attacks, which occurred sometime on Friday night/Saturday morning last week, caused the doors of the postboxes to fly open or break and destroyed all the mail inside.

Anyone who witnessed someone acting suspiciously near or around a postbox is asked to call the police on 101.
