Vandals armed with explosives have launched a dangerous campaign of blowing up parking meters in a historic market town.

Fourteen machines have been attacked in Lewes, East Sussex, since mid-September, causing more than £20,000 of damage.

Police chiefs and councillors say they are amazed no one has been injured and warned whoever is responsible that they could face jail.

The town – famous for its large annual Guy Fawkes night display – has been targeted by vandals systematically blowing up meters in the past.

It started in 2004 after the local council introduced on-street parking charges following complaints of congestion in the county town’s narrow streets.

In the two years that followed, the culprits caused £300,000 damage by destroying more than 200 meters, leading to higher permit charges and increased pay and display parking costs for residents and visitors.
