Woman Fighting Cancer Has Car Attacked

A breast cancer sufferer from Weymouth has been telling Heart it’s the last thing she needed, after vandals attacked her car.

32 year old Vicky Yates needs chemotherapy every 3 weeks, after being diagnosed back in November.

She’d parked her Ford Fiesta overnight in Verne Road near her house. On Wednesday (6th April) morning she found her windscreen had been smashed and the roof of her car had a massive dent in it.

The car has now been written off and Vicky’s been left with the stress of having to buy a new one.

Vicky says: “I went over and saw the damage and it was really bad. I was just really upset and went back to the house and had a little cry, and then panicked about how to get up to the hospital next week. Whoever did this, they’ve given me all this extra worry when I’ve got enough to contend with.”

Police Constable Daniel Kitton, of Weymouth police, said: “This senseless criminality is clearly unacceptable and I am appealing for anyone with information to come forward and help me bring those responsible to justice.”

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 01305 22 22 22 quoting incident number 05:0104. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
