Tyre slasher on the rampage in Portadown
A vandal intent on sucking the air out of Portadown - or at least from its motorists’ tyres - has been on the rampage in the Co Armagh town.
The tyres of at least 34 vehicles have been slashed in recent months with a spate of 18 cars being targeted in recent days following an earlier one last November when the tyres of 16 cars were attacked.
Up to seven separate incidents have been reported and “the people are totally fed up,” Councillor Darryn Cosby told the Portadown Times.
Attacks have been centred in the Brownstown-Edgarstown areas with Mr Cosby convinced the recent spate is the work of the “same phantom”.
