Sisters shock after finding notes stuck to car windscreens with glue after parking on street – Chronicle Live

Two sisters who drive matching cars were left in shock after finding notes stuck to their windscreens with glue and silicone after parking on a residential street.

Ellie Newman, 36, who lives in Whitefield, Greater Manchester, and sister Jordana Timeyin, 39, who lives in Prestwich, park their vehicles on a street close to where they work in Whitefield.

The sisters both drive individual Range Rover Velars in black and white.

But the pair, who both work at Loan Agency Bridgewater Acceptances, say they have had notes left on their windscreens on several occasions, including those being stuck on the glass with glue.

On Thursday, Ellie claims she discovered a note stuck with silicone to the windscreen of her black Range Rover after she finished work, reports the Manchester Evening News.

The note in black felt tip pen read: “Please stop using this street as a car park.

“Residents are coming home from work/shopping and can not park on their own street!!”

But Ellie said she and sister Jordana are perfectly within their rights to park there, as they both pay tax.

She said: “There are no yellow lines. We work in the area and this is what we pay road tax for. Our offices have been there 20 years.

“This has happened about four times. We have had our car scratched and around four notes left, stuck on with super glue, gaffer tape and now silicone. This is criminal damage.”

Friend and colleague Rachel Shard, 41, said she used to park her own vehicle on another nearby street, but also suffered vandalism.

She said: “It was costing me to get my car repaired so I won’t park here anymore. I think it is jealousy.”

Ellie says she has logged the incident to the police online.

According to the official RAC parking guide: “It is perfectly legal to park outside someone’s house, unless the vehicle is blocking a driveway or a wheel is over a dropped kerb.

“Other situations in which parking isn’t permitted include streets governed by residents’ parking permits or any of the restrictions outlined above, i.e. double yellow lines.”

Greater Manchester Police have been contacted for comment.
