Two cars have been daubed with white paint after they were left parked on a street near Manchester Airport.
The words ‘NO PARKING’ were discovered sprawled across the side of the cars over the Bank Holiday weekend.
The paint had also been splashed over boot, bonnet and roof and both cars had their tyres let down.
The vandalised cars were parked around 500 metres from the airport.
One of the cars was owned by someone visiting friends, according to residents.
In recent months, parking has been a contentious issue in residential areas around Manchester Airport.
Many people have complained that cars are being left on streets for days, or even weeks on end, while their owners go on holiday.
GMP Wythenshawe tweeted photos of the cars branding the behaviour ‘completely unacceptable’.
The post read: “Cars parked on Lownorth Road have been damaged over the bank holiday weekend.
“Having their tyres let down and ‘NO PARKING’ painted on the side of the vehicle.
“This behaviour is completely unacceptable and we will take positive action against anyone caught causing damage.”
