VIDEO: Anger as vandals target 20 cars in 'mindless' wrecking spree

FURIOUS residents woke yesterday to find tyres on more than 20 cars had been slashed in a “mindless” overnight wrecking spree in Bradford.
People living in four streets on the edge of the city centre made the upsetting discovery outside their homes.
The vandalism happened to vehicles parked on Little Horton Lane, Melbourne Terrace, Ann Place and Elizabeth Street.
Hussain Khan, 33, of Ann Place, said: “It is mindless vandalism. I am disgusted and I feel let down – both by the police and society in general.


“What was the purpose of this? It is just absolutely pointless.”
He added: “People have not been able to get to work. A barber with his own shop was not able to get to work, so he has lost custom.
“Some people have not been able to get their children to school. One woman came out of her house and realised she had to go and get the bus to get her kids to school.”
Mr Khan also had a message for the people responsible, as he said: “You have ruined a lot of lives today – and for what? It has disrupted lots of people’s lives and will cost them money.
“It is terrible, mindless.
“We hear a lot of things said by councillors, but can we actually move forward and get some police patrols? Maybe a camera?”
Fellow resident Mohammed Ibrar’s car was one of those targeted. The 32-year-old said: “To find out others were targeted as well makes me really angry.
“This has affected a lot of people. It is really bad.
“Fixing a tyre might cost only £20 but it has knocked me back. It knocked my day and knocked my confidence. Next time they might smash a window.”
He added: “It is an area that has been neglected and crime is on the rise - but nothing ever gets done.
“I am hoping someone might have seen something. We really do need someone to help us - maybe police or the Council to put a camera up.
“There are pensioners on that street that have been affected as well. There are vulnerable people.
