Villagers have been left devastated after ‘beautiful’ floral displays were smashed by vandals.
A number of the Hutton In Bloom winter flower displays were overturned and trashed in the early hours of Monday morning.
Displays located from the primary school, in Main Road, through to Hutton Hill were attacked by the culprits.
Cllr Mark Perry, from Hutton in Bloom, took to the streets with a half a dozen volunteers to clean up the mess on Tuesday.
He said: 'We've gone and cleared the mess, there's still a lot of work to do. Some of the handmade displays have been trashed.
