Police are appealing for information after a promotion car for an upcoming 2,200 mile charity event had its windows smashed in Great Yarmouth.

The incident happened sometime between 2pm yesterday and 8.21am this morning on Sandringham Avenue.

Two windows were smashed with a brick.

The car belonging to Alex Brake of Great Yarmouth, is being used to promote the Scrappage Rally which will take place from September 7 to September 11.

It has been held since 2011, and will see a host of convertible cars bought for no more than £500, embark on a 2,200 mile round trip from The Bird in Hand pub in Wreningham, down to France and to Barcelona in Spain before returning to Norfolk.

Mr Brake said: 'It is a shame what has happened and without those windows it would have made for a very chilly 2,200 miles.

'Thankfully a guy called Lewis Delarosa has stepped forward to help me replace the windows and Nick Mason from Hockering Motor Services will fit it in which is brilliant news.'
