motorist's anger as vandals cause £800 of damage to his
angry Burnham-On-Sea resident faces a repair bill of almost £800
after vandals damaged his car while it was parked on the town's
seafront this week.
Wills, treasurer of Burnham Sailing Club, found his Saab had been
targeted with a key or screwdriver on The South Esplanade on Wednesday
evening as he attended the club's AGM.
I came out at around 10.30pm, I found four deep key or screwdriver
gouges in the metallic black paintwork on both sides of the car,"
he told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
repair costs will be just under £800 which the insurers
have advised will result in a £200 loading on my insurance
premium and will also involve a £450 policy excess, leaving
me to foot the entire bill."
added: "This was so unwarranted and mindless. The car is
just one year old and I have only owned it for three weeks which
makes even more frustrating."
any members of the public saw anything suspicious on Wednesday
night, I would urge them to inform the police, who are investigating."
Police can be reached via the non-emergency number 101. The incident
comes just days after we reported here
that a car had been attacked in the town centre.
