A business owner has been left with an expensive cleaning bill after vandals covered a van with paint and eggs on Halloween.
The white Vauxhall van was parked in Durban Road, Lowestoft, when it was targeted sometime between 5pm on Thursday and 7am yesterday morning.
The vehicle is owned by Louise Underdown and her husband Paul, who run Carlton Cleaning in the town.
The mother-of-three said: 'I am annoyed really. I have got children and we do trick or treat and we do Halloween things but they have taken it that step too far.
'I am frustrated more than anything. It is unnecessary.'
