VANDALS have been condemned for making Suffolk's most dangerous road even more hazardous.

The Evening Star has fought a hard-hitting campaign to make the A140 safe after the loss of dozens of lives over the last ten years.

But last night 13 cats eyes were dug up from the centre of the road on the stretch leading into Stoke Ash.

Police were called after a keen-eyed member of the public spotted them scattered either side of the road.

A Suffolk Police spokesman condemned those responsible for putting themselves and other motorists in danger and confirmed criminal damage investigations were underway.

He said: "It's an irresponsible act of vandalism. Cats eyes are there for an obvious purpose and the removal of them may have resulted in far more serious consequences.

"The act of removing them would have put the offender in a lot of danger and endangered other motorists."

Police are appealing for anyone with any information to contact Pc Andrew Smethurst on 01284 774100 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
