A DRIFFIELD mum has spoken of her anger after her car was damaged during a spate of vandalism to vehicles in the town.
Sarah Brotherton 23, of East Gate South was left unable to take her children to nursery and get herself to work after her blue Fiat Punto had both the drivers window and the offside passenger window smashed and a large dent left in the offside passenger door between 5pm on Wednesday February 15 and 7am on Thursday February 16 whilst it was securely parked on Galloway Lane, Driffield.
Miss Brotherton who has two children, Cleo 3 and Cyrus 1, only discovered that the damage had been done to her car when she left her house on February 16 to take her children to nursery before going to work as a hairdresser.
Sarah said: “I’m a single mum and I only realised that the damage had been done when I was going to take the kids to nursery and go to work.”
Despite there being some valuables left in the car, including an ipod, nothing had been taken causing the single mother to believe that the damage, which will cost in excess of £300 to repair, was done because the vandals had “nothing better to do.”
The single mum said: “I’m just so angry.
“They didn’t take anything, they did it for the fact of having nothing better to do,” added Sarah who is the daughter of Tidy Team member, Chris Brotherton.
Police are asking Driffield residents to be vigilant following a number of reports made regarding damage to vehicles around the same time Sarah’s car was vandalised.
Police were called at 2.20am on Thursday February 16 following reports of two boys kicking a number of vehicles on Washington Street.
A BMW and a Skoda were damaged.
At 2.42am on the same day, police were called following damage being caused to a green Renault Clio and a blue Daewoo Matiz on Brook Street.
It was reported that two boys aged around 15 years old and wearing light coloured hooded tops and baseball caps, were seen in each of the locations at the time of the incidents.
Investigations are on going to establish if they are connected.
Anyone with information is asked to call Humberside Police on 101 quoting crime reference 1890867.
