There have been several reports of damage to vehicles, homes and businesses.

The spokesman added: "They have to pay for the damage to be rectified themselves as the cost most of the time is below any insurance excess limit.

"Many victims are left feeling, angry, frustrated or even scared as a result of these incidents."

Police have urged people with information to call them on 101.
