On Monday morning, a resident of Duke Road, noticed scratches across the doors of three cars belonging to her neighbours.

It comes around a month after her own car was given the same treatment, which she had since gotten repaired.

She said; 'It's been happening on and off for the past few weeks now - which is very frustrating. It just looks as though somebody has taken their keys and gone across all the cars they can in a row.

'I've lived here for 18 years, but it is only recently it has become a problem, and short of putting in our own CCTV there is nothing really we can do about it - we can't watch our cars 24-seven.'
