Car owners in Manchester are set to receive a massive shock when they return from holiday, after their vehicles were vandalised while parked in a residential street.

The words ‘no parking’ have been daubed over the two red cars in white paint over the bank holiday.

Lownorth Road in Wythenshawe is located less than half a mile from Manchester Airport – with residents claiming that people are parking their cars for weeks on end while they jet off on holiday.

But it has since emerged that one of the cars targeted was actually owned by someone who was visiting friends in the street.


As well as the white paint being strewn across the vehicle, tyres on the cars are also believed to have been let down.

Greater Manchester Police Wythenshaw has tweeted photos of the cars, describing the behaviour as ‘unacceptable’.

‘Cars parked on Lownorth Road have been damaged over the bank holiday weekend.

‘Having their tyres let down and “NO PARKING” painted on the side of the vehicle.

‘This behaviour is completely unacceptable and we will take positive action against anyone caught causing damage.’
