West Chiltington teenagers charged after vehicles damaged in villages


Two teenagers have been charged with causing criminal damage to vehicles in Billingshurst, Pulborough and West Chiltington in May.

Hamish McLeod-Miller, 19, from West Chiltington and a 17-year-old boy from West Chiltington were each charged with five counts of criminal damage.

Both have been bailed to appear before magistrates in Worthing on September 8.

The 17-year-old cannot be identified for legal reasons.
