Letter from @iowightpolice.

Those responsible for the vandalism of a Christmas tree in Ryde have been forced to apologise – and make a financial donation.

Hampshire Constabulary says the incident has been resolved and is warning that threats to individuals involved need to stop.

As previously reported by Isle of Wight Radio, the tree in St Thomas’ Square was targeted last week.

Following the news, Islanders rallied round to replace baubles stolen and damaged.

Police say those involved have been dealt with by way of community resolution.

Conditions include writing letters of apology and making a financial donation to Network Ryde.
