my car was parked outside the co-op in claughton village and someone walked past it and keyed it
i saw them do it too but because there is no independent witnesses then the matter cannot be taken any further

so its a cry for help.
can anyone out there witness this
it was between 630 and 700 tonight

my car is a blue japanese import and is a one of a kind
it cost me alot of money but its just not fair
:-(
thanks in advance people

Shame that.
How did you keep him there while the police came ?

Was there no cctv outside the shop ?

How come the police can't do anything ? There are plenty of things that happen without any witnesses the police can still do something I don't understand.

There is loads of cctv in C. Village such a shame they can't do anything.

Sorry about the car, it looks good!

Yeah there is one camera and it was pointing the wrong way

I just need to find someone who saw it happen

I diddnt actually see him get a key out and scratch it. All I saw was him walk by very close to it and then it appeared


This is not enough for the police to do anything at all
But what I was told was that I will get a crime number so my insurance can sort it out !!!!
So basically I can pay for it

Also I sat in the police station for nearly an hour last night waiting to see someone about it and when finally someone wasn't busy i was told that there was more important matters and that she was too busy to deal with this at the moment please come back later !!!

I hate that no witness bull, we had our garage broken into several times and every time it was the same line "no witnesses" but come on how many crimes actually do have witnesses! They didnt take prints or anything. It happened so often that we ended up paying £400 to have it bricked up.

Hopefully someone will come forward for you hun.

So sorry Adam. It's really mean to get your car damaged by some scally. It's bad enough if like me you scratch your car yourself by misjudging a gap.

I wish you well

I'm not being funny but if you where parked outside the co op store in claughton I would give up on trying to pursue this as that's right on the pedestrian crossing and it has zig zags there if you mean you where further up towards upton then I'm sure the spar has cctv and also the barclays bank to go back and ask in the shops you never know it might turn out useful

My Bold. I think perhaps therein lies the problem. Unless you can find cctv footage there really is not much you can do as it is your word against his. You could just be someone with a personal grudge against them, he could be your ex's new partner and you're not over the end of the relationship etc. Do you know the name of the individual? The issue would be that yes you could ask the Police to investigate but the amount it would cost to test any keys he possesses forensically would be astronomical and chances are they won't do anything except give you a crime number.

As for them being too busy, I can sort of see their point to be honest. I'm not saying that it's not a crime, but in the great scheme of things at the moment, it's not what I'd call a priority. I'm not condoning what has been done to your car, but the likely outcome is that he'd have to pay for the repairs, probably at £1 a week, assuming you get it at all.

My advice would be to just get the insurance to repair it. No, it's not fair that you should pay, but I can't see you have much of an option. Can it be T-Cutted?

I saw him walk past extremely suspiciously close. It wasn't right outside the co-op but at that parking there.
It was parked right by the bin and lampost so for someone to scratch it it would have had to be a real effort
No cctv at all as it was all pointing the other way
There is nothing I can do at all about this. Its just a big bother.
There was no issue with keeping him there as I rang the police and within 10 mins they were there but the couldn't speak to him until I had written a full statement but cos i never actually saw him do it the case will go no further
Its still the problem that my personal belongings have been damaged and nothing can be done
Its really upsetting

nice car, seen it going around, looks like the dr`s subarus.

Not meaning to put a bum steer on you but the ass who done this will get away with it.

Do something about it yourself.
Did he deny it?
