Two men arrested after 'spree of incidents' across Bangor- six cars damaged by speeding jeep

At least six parked cars were damaged in Bangor by a speeding jeep during a "spree of incidents" across the town on Friday night.

Police said multiple reports were received of a silver Daihatsu jeep being driven erratically in the town centre at around 9.30pm.

The same vehicle was then reported to have been involved in damaging property at a petrol station on South Circular Road and carrying out dangerous 'donut' manoeuvres on the forecourt of another petrol station on Clandeboye Road.
