Vandals trashed a mum’s car after throwing rocks at it.

Charmaine Mcintosh, 28, of Falcon Mews, Maldon, woke on Sunday to find the Mercedes had been badly damaged overnight.

She said: “I only noticed when I got in the car to take my daughter Orla-Mae, two, swimming."

Miss Mcintosh said it will cost £500 to repair and had left them stranded at home because her daughter's car seat does not fit in her fiance Andrew's car.
