Woman finds rotting vegetables and tea bags smeared on her car in bizarre parking row

Hannah Jones returned to find her car damaged and smeared with filth after she had to park it on a back street in Eagley – and she believes the same culprit has struck before

Hannah Jones discovered her car had been vandalized

A woman found rotting vegetables and tea bags smeared on her car after a parking row with a mystery vigilante.

Hannah Jones, 28, discovered her vehicle had been showered with the putrid mess after leaving it on a back street in Eagley on Tuesday, as she was struggling to find another spot in the village.

But the next day, a note had been attached to the windscreen reading “DO NOT PARK HERE”.

The car was covered in filth and the left wing mirror was damaged, forcing her to visit a car wash ahead of meeting business customers that morning.

The Manchester Evening News reports that the incident left Hannah “shocked” – but it is not the first time it’s happened.

After parking in a similar area before, Hannah woke up to find a box of dead flies on top of her car.

Due to the village being a close-knit community, she says she’s “disappointed” a resident would choose vandalism instead of “having a conversation”.

She said: “If you arrive at home anywhere past about 5pm there is usually hardly anywhere to park. I have sometimes had to park 10 minutes away from my house to get a spot – this was the case late night Tuesday.

“I had lots to carry on from my car from work so I parked where no one was parked down a back of house ginnel.

“I ask someone pulling up if anyone parks here and she said no, this is a public car park for anyone to use.

“I use my car to visit a lot of my clients so it’s important that it at least looks clean and tidy.

Teabags were also left on the car in a bizarre act of vandalism

“This morning I woke up early to set off to work and discovered my car was covered in filth.

“It had a note on the front saying DO NOT PARK HERE. This was on paper and it had rained so it stuck to my car window in bits. My wing mirror was pushed forward and the plastic had cracked.

“I had veg rubbed all over the back and left stuck in my back wiper and it stunk. Wet tea bags covered the roof and had dried in stained patches.

“I had to go to a car wash before I went my clients which was obviously not ideal first thing in the morning.”

While Hannah has not reported the incident to the police, she says the incident has made her more wary of where she parks in the village.

“This has happened once before and the same person didn’t leave me a note I just woke up to a box of dead flies on my car,” she continued.

“It’s clearly the same person.

“I was pretty shocked at first that someone had put a lot of their energy into being so horrible. It’s a close-knit neighborhood; I was disappointed that someone would go down this route rather than just have a conversation.

“I completely understand if I literally parked on someone’s drive or blocked someone in, but even so I don’t think it would warrant that behaviour.

“It has made me more wary, this person is obviously out to do some damage.”
