The latest update on the vandal who slashed the tyres of more than 40 cars at the Governments DVLA office in Swansea is that they had an axe to grind.
Police suspect the tyres slasher had a grudge against staff at the agency which hands down fines and penalties to speeding drivers.
The attacker struck in the staff car park at the centre and left many workers unable to get home and facing repair bills running into hundreds of pounds.
One civil servant at the offices said: “We came out of work and every car in the road had its tyres slashed – it was unbelievable.
“Someone had gone along and done two tyres on every car. There must have been 40 cars involved.
“No one could move and people were left stranded, nobody could get home. It’s going to cost me £100 to get my car fixed. What kind of person would do this?”
South Wales Police are investigating the damage and appealing for information about a black car – a Ford Fiesta of Focus – seen in the grounds of the DVLA.
