Senseless vandals destroy autistic girl's trampoline in garden rampage

First published in News by

A HEARTBROKEN mum told how vandals went on a slashing spree in her garden destroying a much-loved trampoline used by her severely autistic daughter.

Samantha Broughton was shocked to find garden furniture had been targeted by blade-wielding yobs in a night-time attack at the family home in Kestrel View, Littlemoor, Weymouth.

The items, which appear to have been slashed with a Stanley knife or similar blade, include a £300 swing garden chair less than a year old and a trampoline which is a bit older.

Miss Broughton’s three-year-old daughter Olivia, who is severely autistic and has communication and sensory problems, loved bouncing on the trampoline every day that she could.

Miss Broughton cannot explain to her what has happened or why she cannot go out and play any more in the garden.

“It meant the world to her. It is absolutely devastating,” said Miss Broughton, 31, who has two other children with partner Peter Evans, 34.

She said they had been at their home for 11 years and never had any trouble and blames the attack on ‘mindless vandals.’ Miss Broughton added: “Life is very different for Olivia, who is nearly four.

“She’s in her own little world and doesn’t interact with others. She’s happy but she’s not really with us.

“But she could really let herself go on the trampoline.”

The vandals would have got into the garden from a footpath which runs behind the house.

Miss Broughton discovered the damage as she let Olivia out to play, thinking at first as she approached that a cat had gone berserk.

She said: “As I got closer I realised what had happened and someone had slashed up the trampoline and the chair with a Stanley knife or something.

“Olivia loved that trampoline and had been going on it every day now with the weather improving. We bought the seat so we could be next to her and keep an eye on her.

“Olivia doesn’t have a lot of understanding and can’t speak and I can’t explain to her she can’t go out into the garden because some nasty person had destroyed her trampoline.

“It’s distressing for her and she can’t understand why.

“She keeps leading us to the back door because she wants to go out to play.”

Witnesses and anyone with information about the damage, which happened overnight on Thursday, March 13, can call Dorset Police on 101.

Ah Littlemoor - where the crime rate (we are reliably informed) has dropped by 48.9%. Clearly you can prove anything with figures.

... Did you just add delinquents to your vocab? You seem to love the word an awful lot. It's also not as easy as just moving all criminals to one island where they can live together, you're delusional. As much as this story is horrible & had clearly caused stress for the family, it's probably a handful of drunken kids just mindlessly destroying things, rather than a targeted attack on an autistic girls trampoline.

If you do not have a computer to leave on 24/7, you could buy something cheap like one of those cameras off ebay that has a recorder built in and is also view-able from outside the house on the internet. Example:
Tenvis IP391W HD.

You can also try Foscam's and others of similar budget Always go for the HD models with audio as the standard ones are not really quite good enough and also ones with "IR filters" as they give natural colours

Everyone should have one of these (or better models if you can afford it) on their property, especially if you are going to leave "£300 chairs" and other expensive items outside. If you can afford those things, why on earth skimp on your security? If you had one, they may have already been caught.

Trouble is that Kestrel View is right behind Beverley Road which not an area I would fancy living. Knowing that I wouldn't fancy leaving anything of value in my back garden.

I am not claiming it is false - I am saying that as a figure is meaningless. If there are 1,000 crimes, even if that has dropped to 511, that still represents a high crime rate level and it is a crime-ridden area. 500 crimes is about 10 per week. And what type of crimes have dropped - violent crimes, arson, vandalism? And what about unreported crime - that isn't even reported to the police of course

It just appears that whenever there is a problem or crime the area of Littlemoor comes up regularly and frequently.

Yes that figure comes from Dorset Police. If you believe it to be false i suggest you take it up with them.
I am not claiming it is false - I am saying that as a figure is meaningless. If there are 1,000 crimes, even if that has dropped to 511, that still represents a high crime rate level and it is a crime-ridden area. 500 crimes is about 10 per week. And what type of crimes have dropped - violent crimes, arson, vandalism? And what about unreported crime - that isn't even reported to the police of course

It just appears that whenever there is a problem or crime the area of Littlemoor comes up regularly and frequently.
Thats because the echo sensationalise any negative story involving Littlemoor.

Rampage - really????

OK, I agree the Vandals should be strung up at shot but as someone else pointed out above, the trampoline had already been mended with tape. So what has actually happened is a trampoline joy-rider (who is heavier than the nor usual user) has got on and the tape has given way......
