TWO youths are being sought by police after a spate of criminal damage.

Officers have released CCTV footage of the pair attempting to enter several cars in Southdown Avenue, Portslade, by trying the door handles.

Shortly after this police received reports of cars in the area being scratched.

The two youths were captured on film between 10pm on September 18 and 4am the following morning.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: "Anyone who recognises the suspects is urged to report it online or call 101, quoting serial 1143 of 19/09.

"Or, if your vehicle was damaged in the area between those times and you have yet to report it, please contact us.
