Member of the public, Richard McCann, saw the aftermath of the vandalism. He said: “Building on docks empty and up for lease was badly damaged again kids yesterday. Windows smashed items thrown from first floor into car park. Looks a real mess.”
Councillor Peter Kelly, ward councillor for Riversway, said: “It’s disappointing to hear of the vandalism at the empty offices. Something like this doesn’t help the community and could even jeopardise future business investment in the area.
“Preston is a great city with a lot to offer. It saddens me that a few people spoil it for everyone with actions such as these.”
Preston Police were approached for a comment about the incident but did not respond.
