A mum was left fuming after someone smashed into her car and left the scene without informing her or the police.

Laura Tilley’s red Nissan Qashqui was rammed 10ft along the street it was parked in and was significantly damaged.

Laura, 33, of Meadowgate, Bourne, won’t get it back until next week and although she has a courtesy car she says she is disgusted.

She has had the car for only a few months and it is really liked by her 10-year-old daughter Izzy, who has Sotos syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that can cause excessive growth when children are toddlers and in some cases may be accompanied by autism and delayed motor, cognitive, and social development and speech impairments.

Laura, who also has a one-year-old daughter, Amalie, said: “It is so disappointing.

“My daughter really likes the car and we have had to tell her the CD player is broken and that is why it has got fixed because otherwise she would get upset.

“It just feels really unfair that someone caused this damage and just drove off.

“Luckily we were not in the car.

The Nissan was parked on the opposite side of the street to Laura’s house, outside the The Butterfield Centre in Meadowgate.

Laura discovered the damage on Sunday morning, but did not hear the accident happen.

She said her car must have been hit with considerable force to have been knocked 10ft along the street.

It is not known how much the repairs will cost and although insured, Laura will have to pay the excess.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the incident, or who may have spotted a damaged vehicle with broken front lights in the area, to call them on 101 quoting incident 170 of November 10.
