POLICE are investigating the vandalism of planters in Denbigh town centre.

Newly-planted flowerbeds on Crown Square were destroyed less than a week after being placed.

The flowerbeds are part of the Denbigh in Bloom campaign, and the organisers of the campaign said the damage was "heart-breaking".
