A Truro mother has been left disgusted after CCTV caught a stranger urinating on her car.

Shereen Allen from Trevelva Road, Malpas, was horrified when she found footage of a man relieving himself on her car last Saturday night.

Mrs Allen was alerted to the incident when her son, Ryan, looked out of his bedroom window and saw the man urinating on her Citroen C4 car at midnight.

He shouted at them to stop and the offending man and his friend stumbled off.

Mrs Allen was able to find the incident on her private CCTV, but was unable to identify the perpetrator.

She said: “I thought it was pathetic and I don’t see what they got from it.

“It’s about respect and they obviously don’t have respect for people in the area.”

The mother of five believes that this might have been a targeted attack by those angry at her campaigns to stop boy racers disturbing her cul-de-sac.

She added: “I do think it was a personal attack on me and I have no idea why anyone would do it.

“I can only think that it’s because I’m making it quite clear on my Facebook page that most of our residents are tired of hearing screeching tyres and brakes.”

The angry resident informed Devon and Cornwall police to see if they can help track down the culprit.

Mrs Allen said: “I feel it is a little drastic but I feel that I have got to do it to get more preventative action.

“I just don’t get it, if you hate someone you just stay away, you don’t so something like this."

While she doesn’t want the man to get a criminal conviction, Mrs Allen said that she would like him to come and wash her car as way of an apology.

After posting the video on her Facebook page the42 year-old has received dozens of messages of support.

Rayane Dansie posted: “It’s vile that some people have no respect for anyone else’s belongings!”

    It was for people like this that the stocks would be ideal. Failing that he should be, if caught, named and shamed.
