Cars damaged in 'parking dispute'
Officers investigating vandalism attacks on a number of cars in a Northamptonshire village believe they may have been targeted by somebody who is angry with people parking on public roads.
Since December, a number of vehicles have been damaged while they have been parked in the street in Holcot.
The main areas where the vandalism has happened are in Back Lane, Sunningdale and Sywell Road.
PC Joey Werdekker from Daventry’s local response team told Connect FM: “Some residents in Holcot are finding that if they park their cars on a public road they return to find someone has come along and scratched it overnight.
“This is costly for owners to repair and it is criminal damage.
“I would urge any residents to report any information they may have to assist with finding out who is scratching these vehicles.
“I would also advise anyone who has had their vehicle scratched and damaged to report it to the police.”
Witnesses, or anyone who knows anything about these incidents, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101.

Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or use the anonymous online form at
