The incident, which took place on Tuesday, also saw guttering damaged and tiles ripped from the roof.

A statement from police said: ‘We have been speaking to a number of people as part of this investigation. At this time, we have interviewed a 13-year-old boy from Fareham who has agreed to sign an Acceptable Behaviour Contract.

‘Our work continues, in partnership with Fareham Borough Council to tackle the issues of anti-social behaviour in this area and further people will be spoken to by police in due course. 

‘Enquiries relating to these issues and the criminal damage remain ongoing.’
