Man attacked Bedfordshire dealership with axe

A man attacked a Bedfordshire car dealership with an axe after deciding the Porsche he'd bought there was no good.

Last November, while serving a suspended sentence for leaving a severed deer's head at a Tesco store, James Hyett of Saffron Walden went to Henlow Car Sales in Henlow, Bedfordshire, armed with an axe and a knife.

He'd bought a Porsche there a decade previously but decided the car was no good.

He smashed the office window of the saleroom and the rear window of a BMW parked on the forecourt, then he moved across to Clifton Cuisine in Broad Street and attacked a Land Rover Discovery, stabbing a tyre with his knife, the court heard.

He was found by police shortly afterwards sitting on a wall outside an Esso service station.

Luton Crown Court imposed a 24-month community order with a mental health treatment requirement.
