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.
