YOBS threw paint over vehicles and left nails behind tyres in Belton.

Four vehicles, including two white vans and a burgundy Ford Fiesta, were targeted by vandals who had also carefully placed large nails behind tyres of parked vehicles in Ranworth Close.

Local resident Sam Burgess, 26, was driving home after an evening out at about 12.15am last Friday when she noticed a couple of kids running from the close.

She said: “I didn't think anything of it at first but then I noticed lots of cars with paint on them. I ran in the house and woke my husband up and called the police.”

Mrs Burgess has lived in Ranworth Close since January and said she and husband Adrian had experienced no problems.

“The lady next door has lived here for more than 30 years and she has never had any problems. There are cars parked at garages which are in the dark and I can't understand why they targeted the cars parked in the light and close to people's homes.”

Four vehicles had brown and white paint thrown over them and while Mrs Burgess' car was not affected she said her neighbours' cars had been badly hit.
