A BUSINESS owner has been left to pick up the bill after vandals smashed the windows on his trucks overnight. 

Brothers Terry and Ricky Gorman, who own 5 Star Recycling, discovered that someone had thrown bricks at two of their vehicles parked in Tudor Way, Dines Green. 

The pair have lost two days of work as well as been left with a £700 bill after the attack on Monday morning (June 24).

Terry said: "It's been an absolute nightmare.

"Sadly bricks have been thrown at our trucks and smashed the windscreens. 

"Not only have we had to spend £700 to fix them, but we have also lost two days of work to put it right.

"My fingers are crossed that we can catch the people who did it. 

"We do have a third truck but they all go to individual jobs so it's had a major impact.

"Luckily we have been able to get AGS out within 24 hours and now the windows have been fixed."

Following this incident, Mr Gorman has been left fearing for the safety of his home and has spent another £1,000 on installing CCTV.

Mr Gorman continued: "It's really annoying to be honest.

"I'm left fearing for the safety of my home and the cars on my drive. 

"My children have been asking questions, I'm worrying that I'll wake up and it will have happened again. 

"Sadly we don't have CCTV but it's being fitted in the next two weeks and hopefully if it happens again we will catch them.

"It's another £1,200 to have CCTV installed, but it's not something that's going to happen overnight."

Unfortunately, the trucks were not parked directly outside Mr Gorman's home and instead were around 80 yards down the street. 

They are hoping people may have caught those responsible on CCTV or Ring door cameras.  

Mr Gorman said: "Sadly I don't know if it was kids or adults but I think it happened between midnight and 1am. 

"Sadly there's been a bit of a trend in the area of work vans being targeted. 

"I've had at least eight or nine messages from people who have been in the same situation."

The incident has been reported to police and they have been given the reference number DP2691124222203. Anyone with information should call police on 101.
