    Guess what - Just caught her again! Called 101...

    Here is the money shot youtube.com /watch?v=bK2USm6quUg

    In this situation, I'd confront the woman with the evidence and threaten her with police action if she doesn't foot the bill for the repair.

    Threatening someone with police action will probably get you further than actually having her dealt with by the police.
  • I think it's disgusting what your neighbour is doing, there's absolutely no reason for it but a genuine question - why are you not parking your vehicle outside your own property to save the vehicles from the vandalism?

    TBH from what I've read about her here she seems the type that wouldn't give a toss. Racial abuse and harassment already from her, she thinks she's above the law. Fingers crossed now the local plod show her she isn't.

    Trouble with that video of the RR is the identity of the person doing it . We all know its the woman but how can it be proven?

    - Witnesses? She's always wearing the same pink jacket.
    I suggest that the OP is not English and that is a big part of the problem.
    - that is her motive I suppose.. Also being told to go back to where I came from is a clue...

    - It doesn't matter where I park - she will always find a way to scratch it. To be fair, I try parking as close to the CCTV as possible to catch her. Overnight, the whole street is rammed up and there is literally null spaces available. I left the car overnight at that spot and It wasnt until 1600 that I went to the shop and noticed the scratch.

    If you look closely, there is a black land rover further down the street - she managed to scratch that one too - just a proof that she doesnt care where you park.

    A person in a pink jacket is not going to prove it's her , the police need to seize that coat from her house asap

    Go to the local paper. Make sure they know the police aren't taking it seriously. They will love this story, especially as you've got a photo of her clearly doing it.
    Changing the world, one sarcastic comment at a time.

    Well you do need more evidence than that....... But just getting the coat will help the case. Anyone could be in the coat ( yeah i know its her) but criminal cases need to proven beyond reasonable doubt , there is doubt in that video , isn't there ?
