A RUGBY player has been left distraught after her car - which is her pride and joy - was vandalised on her driveway.

Amanda Jennings, of Penzance Road, Kesgrave, thought her Nissan Micra was safe when she left it outside her house after work at 11.15pm. When she came out to use it the following morning at 7am, she discovered it had been damaged.

It seems as though vandals had ripped the top part of her car door away from the frame and opened the sunroof before climbing in and trashing her stereo. They took the front part off the stereo and the remote control for it yet both are useless without the main part. Her car had more than £1,500 worth of damage to it.

It happened on the same night (Wednesday April 25) that vandals ruined the Ted and Hazel Proctor's garden on nearby Penryn Road. The yobs also ripped the drainpipes off the wall outside of Ms Jennings' house.

The 24-year-old, who has represented Ipswich, Eastern Region in rugby and was recently selected to play in the Ladies Superleague, said: “I was devastated. This was my first car and I was very attached to it. I learned to drive in it and have never had any accidents, bumps or scrapes. I was absolutely distraught when she saw what had happened to my 'baby'.”

The amount of damage caused means it is very likely to be written off by the insurance company.
