Police are appealing for witnesses and information following an incident in Letchworth Garden City during which a mobile phone was damaged.

It was reported that a man and woman were involved in a verbal altercation, before a mobile phone was grabbed and thrown into a garden, causing the screen to smash.

"I would also like to hear from anyone else who may have witnessed what happened."

Call the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/41082/22.
