An alert Normanby resident has helped police catch a trio of teenagers believed to be behind a string of petty vandalism around the township.

Sergeant Kim Severinsen said police were called to a Normanby property shortly after 2.30am, on December 23, after a witness heard strange noises coming from a nearby building.

''It's one of those unusual ones where they have caused damage instead of stealing property.''

One of the alleged vandals will appear in the Hawera Youth Court on burglary and wilful damage charges, the other two were referred to Youth Aid.

Is high tea at a funeral parlour your cup of tea?

Yes, it's fun and even educational.

Hmmm, I don't object but it's not for me.

No, it's macabre and in bad taste.

Over my dead body ...
