NHS worker scared for her family after she finds 'RIP' written across her car

An NHS worker is scared for the safety of her family after she found "RIP" written across her car.

Michelle Stevens, from Southport, discovered the terrifying message as her BMW 120D convertible was being recovered, after its roof was stabbed for the second time in four months.

The message had been put on the vehicle overnight and became clear as the car defrosted, leaving the single mum horrified.

Michelle said the incident is not the first time her car has been targeted, with the latest incident taking place on December 15, when a sharp object was repeatedly put through the car's roof, Lancs Live reports.

Michelle, 49, said: “It’s horrifying, it’s just so scary.

“When I was looking at it, I saw the letters. Even the recovery man said ‘that is disturbing’.”

The latest incident took place at around 11.30pm on Sunday, December 15 as Michelle started to think problems were settling down and involved a sharp object being repeatedly put through the car’s roof.

Video footage shows a hooded man calmly approach the car undeterred by the security light being triggered before stabbing the roof multiple times.

He then damages a rear door as he appears to duck down as a car passes by before walking away.

Separate CCTV footage shows a man getting out of a silver car at the junction of Lyndhurst Road and Longford Road.

The cost of repairs to the car is likely to run into the thousands and Michelle expects the car to instead be written off by her insurers.

In August, the car was repeatedly slashed and sprayed with paint in a similar incident.

Michelle said: “I’ve held off putting on the new roof in the hope that things would settle down.

“I just want to be left alone and they won’t stop. I thought it was over, I thought that the car’s been done but at least it’s over but now this has happened.”

She previously said that she felt it necessary to leave a bucket of water under the letterbox in case anything on fire is pushed through in the night.
