Shocked Kilton residents woke to find their car tyres slashed and windows and mirrors smashed, just after Christmas.

A man was arrested after the rampage on Sunday 29th December, but has since been bailed.

People living in Osberton View flats say they were woken in the early hours by shouting outside.

The police were called to the disturbance and residents were told that several cars in the car park had been damaged.

Notts Police said officers attended reports that three cars had their tyres slashed. But residents say it was six.

“There was glass everywhere,” said Dave Cheetham, whose girlfriend’s brand new car had three tyres slashed and a wing mirror smashed.

His own car was the victim of two burst tyres.

“I was gutted, obviously. It’s going to cost more than £500 to get the repairs done. We just can’t afford it straight after Christmas.”

“I felt really bad for my girlfriend because she was only visiting.”

“Whoever did this can’t be sane. Why would you do that to people you don’t even know?”

Fellow Osberton View resident Simon White said he saw at least two tyres slashed on each vehicle, and one with a brick through the window.

Said Simon: “This area has been getting worse over the years but nothing seems to be done about it.”

“We all agree some CCTV cameras should be put up to deter this kind of behaviour.”

“It worked by reducing crime on Sandy Lane.”

A 29-year-old man was arrested over the incident and is currently on police bail.
