Adrian Mansfield was at home with his family on Wednesday, January 2 when he was disturbed by noise outside.

The father-of-two, who lives in Beech Close, said: “I was at home when I heard a crash at the window. I went out to the garden and saw eggs all over my house.”

The following morning Mr Mansfield found the door had been kicked on his egg-splattered Alfa Romeo.

The 41-year-old, who describes his car as his “pride and joy”, said: “They had thrown about four eggs on my car and about seven at my house.

“It’s going to cost around £700 to fix my car. I don’t see why I should have to claim on my insurance. I don’t see why I should have to pay.”

Mr Mansfield, a team leader at Lotus, said when he called the police to report the crime, they said they had received similar egg-related complaints.

A spokesman from Norfolk Constabulary said: “We are currently investigating two incidents in Wymondham, one of damage to a car and eggs being thrown at a property on Beech Close on the evening of Wednesday, January 2, and the other of the theft of a large quantity of eggs from a stall on Cavick Road during the day on Wednesday, January 2.”

Two 16-year-old boys from Wymondham have been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and theft in relation to these incidents and have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

A 15-year-old boy from Wymondham has been spoken to by police regarding egg throwing and inquiries are ongoing, with a view to dealing with any offences through Restorative Justice.
