Watch: Youths caught smashing vehicles at car dealership

This is shocking moment a group of youths caused an estimated £4,000 of damage when they smashed up cars at a dealership in broad daylight.

The three were filmed throwing bricks at vehicles on the forecourt at Davies Car Sales in Warrington, Cheshire, before one is seen jumping on a car.

Three cars were damaged during the attack, that took place at around 5.30pm on 27 August, while a shopfront window was also smashed.

CCTV at the dealership caught the three hooded youths, believed to be between 15 and 17 years old and wearing face coverings, hurling bricks at cars on the forecourt.

Davies Car Sales sells second-hand cars and vans, and are one of the best-known car dealership places in Warrington.

Mark Davies, managing director of second-hand dealership Davies Car Sales, said: “It is so infuriating, and I am just disgusted that youths are doing this in their local community in broad daylight.

“I want to make people aware that this is happening.

"It is ridiculous that kids are causing this kind of damage.

“This is a very busy junction and someone must know these idiots, who ran off into the cemetery opposite and jumped over the wall.
