A Northampton resident has condemned the “mindless morons” who have scratched the bodywork on his car and a number of other vehicles in the same street in the last four days.

Roy Anderson, who lives in Hazeldene Road, in Links View, said his Ford Mondeo and a number of other cars were damaged in the early hours of Friday and on Saturday night.

Police are investigating several incidents of criminal damage and are encouraging any witnesses to come forward.

But Mr Anderson said he was now planning to buy a CCTV camera system to act as a deterrent to the vandals.

He said: “The look of my car is ruined, as is many of my neighbours.

“The mindless morons have gouged deep scratches into vehicles all the way up one side of the road, in my case, and others, they came back to inflict even more damage the next night.

“Even though the security light came on, they still had no fear coming on my property and damaging my vehicle.

“Unless I do something they will keep coming back with impunity.”

A spokesman for Northants Police said the force was investigating the report of criminal damage to a car in Hazeldene Road, Northampton and was appealing for witnesses.

Anyone who has any information about the criminal damage can call police on 101.
