Pranksters rampaged through the Surrey village of Wonersh, pouring beans and other food onto cars and front doors under the cover of night. The incidents have left the residents of Wonersh “understandably distressed”, police officers said.

Police have issued warnings to shops selling the products amid the rise in the trend.

Photos were shared on the Surrey Police Facebook page which showed a car coated in canned beans.

Another image shows four cans and their contents smeared across a doorstep.

Previously, West Yorkshire Police urged shop workers to be aware of youngsters buying large quantities of cans of beans.

PCSO Michelle Owens explained “beaning” involves youths throwing the contents of a can of beans over properties, similar to the trend of throwing eggs at properties.

She added: “If you work in a shop, please can you be aware of youths buying large quantities of cans of beans.”

She also warned parents to be mindful of their own children participating in ‘beaning’, by removing cans of beans from the family home.

Surrey Police were also critical of the trend and asked for people to report any suspicious behaviour to them.

“The victims are understandably distressed by this unacceptable behaviour.

“If something similar has happened to you or you know anything that could assist with identifying persons responsible, please let us know.

“Local officials will be patrolling the area and keeping an eye out for anything suspicious.”
