Frances Doncaster heard the vehicle reversing near her home on Chapel Lane at around 10.45pm on February 6, before hearing another noise - a large bang.

Ms Doncaster said: "When we looked out our window, we saw the truck drive off, but it was clear that some damage was done to my car.

"We went out with the hope that it was just a wing mirror but in fact the driver has sliced the metal work in my car. We didn't manage to catch the writing on the truck.

"If anyone knows anyone who was driving home around that time in a van please let me know. I am really worried that I will be unable to cover the cost of this damage."
