Carlisle City Council are asking anyone with information about a spate of vandalism in the city centre to contact Cumbria Police.
A spokesperson from the council said:
"Eight hand sanitising points were vandalised in the city centre on the evening of Sunday 28 June. They had been installed by us to support the reopening of the high street. The replacement will cost more than £1,000.
"The vandalism follows on from similar action last week when a further two hand sanitising points were damaged.
