A residential area in Surrey has been targeted by vandals damaging vehicles, it has been reported.

The Surrey Mirror has commented that drivers have found their windows smashed and paintwork scratched.

Problems such as this could lead to people having to claim on their car insurance policies or pay to avoid invalidating their no-claims bonus.

A spokesperson for Surrey Police commented that steps are being taken to curb the activity in the future.

"Officers from Reigate & Banstead's safer neighbourhood team distributed leaflets in the area to warn motorists and ask them to remain vigilant and local officers regularly patrol the area," said the representative.

Earlier this month, the Surrey Advertiser reported that the south-east has been named the most dangerous when it comes to rural roads.

There are five times as many accidents on country highways than on A-roads and motorways in the region, it stated.
