Alex Spink's car was also a victim of vandalism
Some cars have had explicit and racist words etched into the paintwork.
CCTV from a residential property in Meadow Lane has been released to BHU which shows some youths running down the road, one of which appears to run his hand down the side of a silver peugeot 206.
One resident in Meadow Lane saw three youths by her car, and when she called out to ask what they were doing, they claimed they were just looking at her nice car before one then gave her a mouthful of abuse before they all ran away!!!
