"Every evening I have arrived home from work this week there has been nowhere for me to park as most people are staying at home.

"This note has been reported and I ask all of my neighbours to please look out for anyone acting suspicious around my car.

"This note is shameful in any circumstance but even more so at a time like this."

She finished off her reply with #BeKind.

Many have praised the nurse's response, with one woman writing on Facebook: "The sweary and threatening note was stuck on the nurse's car after she had got home and parked after a 12-hour shift.

"When she went to go to work the next morning that was on her windscreen.

"She then went to do another 12-hour shift and wrote up the her reply and put them through the doors of every house on Fenpark Road to let us all know how awful it was and ask if we can keep an eye out for her.

"With everything that's going on right now, this is appalling. Parking isn't great on our street but it ever has been!

"To have this put on this wonderful nurse's car when she got home from looking after people just blows my mind."

Another added: "Appalling, parking spaces can lead to stressful problems but there is no excuse for this. Thanks for all you're doing, I hope someone allows you their space if they need to stay home sweetheart."
