Tired of that CCTV camera? No worries, these two gentlemen can take it down in no time.

It happened on Dorning Road, Swinton, at about 1.30pm on 7 May 2011.

The vandals used a portable saw to cut through the CCTV camera pole, causing it to collapse and transmission was lost.

have now released CCTV footage taken from the camera seconds before it
was cut down and are appealing to anyone who either recognises the
offender or who has information about what happened to come forward.

Inspector Vinny Greener from the Salford Division of Greater Manchester
Police said: "The CCTV was put up after residents complained about
antisocial behaviour on their estate. Within days of it being in place
it led to the arrest of a wanted man and has already provided evidence
regarding antisocial behaviour.

"Clearly its presence is
upsetting the criminal fraternity and it has been deliberately attacked
in broad daylight for all to see. I want to reassure people that the
police, Salford City Council and City West are working together to
identify those responsible. Anybody who has any information regarding
this please let us know on 0161 872 50 50 or contact Crimestoppers
anonymously on 0800 555 111."
