Window cleaner Jamie Parr and his partner Rachel woke up on Sunday at their West Park Street home to discover the windows of their van had been smashed.

In November, vandals smashed the windows of their van and car, and the front window of their home.

The most recent attack has been captured on CCTV. Police are analysing the footage.

Mrs Parr said: “There was an incident in November where the windows in the van and the front window got smashed. It happened again on Saturday night.

“It happened at 11.15pm. Me and my partner were up but we didn’t hear it. We heard the dog barking but we thought it was just being protective.

“When we woke up and let the dog out, we saw the window had been smashed again of the van.”

If anyone has information call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0888 555 111.
