Vandals who have targeted a sports facility in Ely may be revealed sooner rather than later after CCTV has captured the culprits in action.  

Football goals at Haddenham recreation ground have been sliced by the vandals, leaving a number of holes in them. 

The goals are now unusable. 

A football club who uses the ground, Haddenham Rovers Colts, believe the CCTV footage they have shows the culprits performing the act. 

A spokesperson said: “The goals were vandalised last week and we do have CCTV of the culprits. 

“We would urge them to contact the football club (haddenhamroverscolts@gmail.com) with an offer to fund the repairs.
