A window of a parked car has been smashed and the bonnet tampered with by vandals.

A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: “When the owner, a 48-year-old woman, returned to her vehicle she found it had been damaged and that entry had been forced.

“The front passenger window was smashed and both the bonnet and front bumper had been tampered with.”

Alison Toon, owner of the car, said: “I’ve lived here for 13 years and never had anything like this happen before.

“I’m really annoyed that someone could do this. You go to work, are a decent member of society and then some scum goes and smashes your window.

“However, the support I’ve received from people on Facebook has been very humbling and heartwarming.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the damage, or have any information, please call 101 quoting reference number 18000021280.
