"This has been reported to the Police and we are working with the School and Vivacity to see if anything has been picked up on the numerous cameras around the playing fields.

"Obviously we are disappointed this has occurred. We are hoping to catch the culprits and ensure this is just a one off incident at Clayburn Road.”

It is thought the incident happened between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cambridgeshire police on 101 quoting crime number 35/52763/22
