Our tyres were vandalised by idiot thugs who targeted cars all along our street – they left notes taunting us | The Sun
NEIGHBOURS have vented their fury after vandals attacked at least seven cars on a street – leaving families scrambling to get their kids to school.
Residents of Randolph Crescent, near central London, woke up on Tuesday to find their family SUV's deflated by a group of climate-thugs.
As eco-activists like Just Stop Oil continue to block-up busy roads and vandalise monuments across the capital, another climate mob has sprung up in its wake.
The group targets family SUVs and deflates their tyres, which they claim are "gas guzzlers" and "killers".
But residents in one affluent London road have felt the brunt, with local mum Kate saying they caused "havoc" on the calm family street.
She said: "A lot of cars had their tires slashed by the eco-mob – it caused chaos on the school run.

"We had to pay for a very expensive Uber in the bad weather. Everybody is just up in arms about it.
"How can this be allowed to happen on the streets of London? What if people are in an emergency and need to get out in their car quickly?"
Another resident was forced to have his car towed by their "unacceptable" act.
He continued: "Three of my tires are now flat – but there's been no police here.
"No police cover, just nobody's interested."

The move also puzzled locals as several of their vandalised motors were hybrid or electric cars, which they said was regular "because we're in central London".
One resident, who only discovered his SUV was hit as he was walking out his home, slammed the attack as "childish".
He added: "Is this really going to win people over? You almost feel like this is being funded to make people turn against them.
"I care about the environment, but this isn't winning me over."
Another local who has lived in the area for over 30 years said he has never seen anything like it, and slated the move as "over the top".
"There are other ways to protest", he said.
"I think it's quite unacceptable really – in a residential street, it is ludicrous."
A pregnant mum, who moved onto the street around two years ago, said the damage to personal property was "absolutely outrageous".
She added: "These things seem to be happening all over the place right now.
"What do you do when you have children? I'm pregnant right now and we need a bigger car – they should back off".
The anger felt among the community was echoed by local resident Mohammed Aziz, who said the attack was "shocking".
He said: "They need to calm down, let people live, we're not harming anyone by using our cars."
We're not affecting them – but they're affecting us
"Why do it? Us normal civilians don't do stuff like this", he added.
One dad, who was returning home with his infant son when he saw the damage to his car, slammed the group as unfairly targeting families who need large motors to get around.
"Here we have insufficient transport facilities, particularly with a 2-year-old", he said.
"It doesn't help further the cause.
"I'm sure this street has been picked upon as an affluent street with a lot of SUVs – but the reason is a lot of us have children.
"There has always been jealously on streets like this".
