The machine was discovered on Sunday November 20 covered in black paint or tar. The Police have attended the crime scene with a forensics unit.
No attempt to open the parking machine had been made and no money was stolen.
The ticket machine is inoperable at present but will be cleaned and repaired and should be online early next week. The cost of repairs will be approximately £2,000.
There will be no charge for parking in Station Road car park until the unit is repaired and working.
Leader of NNDC Cllr Tom FitzPatrick said: “We take this kind of vandalism very seriously and would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the incident taking place. The Council has a policy of prosecuting offences and we will make no exception in this instance.”
Anyone with any information please contact the Police on 101.
