No escape for smashing pumpkins

Two teenagers have owned up to a ghoulish prank at a Corsham primary school, after they destroyed four hand-carved pumpkins made by the schoolchildren.
The 18-year-olds admitted trespassing at the Corsham Regis Primary Academy on King’s Road in the early hours of October 17, after a local police appeal online.
Corsham PCSO Shaun Redmond said: “They climbed over the fence and got into the grounds, and smashed the pumpkins.
“We put it out on our Facebook page, and were contacted by the two girls, and now we’re dealing with it by local resolution.
“It was a good response from the community, as the children were upset, so this will put it all right.”
The town’s neighbourhood police team regularly updates its Facebook page with appeals and information about the town. It can be found at www.facebook.com/CorshamPolice
