Police officers on the hunt for moped-riding yobs who smashed car windows in a city street have scrapped their search.

The incident was caught on CCTV in Rider Haggard Road, Heartsease, at around midnight on June 10.

The footage shows two people riding a moped zipping up and down the road, bashing windows as they went.

Sharron Kirkwood, 53, who was one of the victims of the vandal's motor-smashing spree, said: "I've heard back from the police but no progress was made.

"To be honest I expected it.

"Even with the CCTV footage I didn't have many expectations that someone would be caught.
