A man is appealing for witnesses to help police track down the driver who damaged his car and failed to stop.

Alan Little says more than £3,000 of damage has been caused to his four-wheel drive Hyundai Sante Fe by the culprit, who drove off from Finway Road where the car was parked outside Mr Little’s work.

Herts Police confirmed they are investigating the crash, which took place on Tuesday, January 20 between 8am and 5.30pm within Hemel Hempstead’s industrial estate at the junction with Three Cherry Trees Lane.

Mr Little, 47, said: “My car is a total write-off – that’s how much damage has been done, and the driver has decided not to stop.

“The damage was extensive, it was quite a shock. I am just hoping someone saw something on that day.

“No-one has owned up to this cowardly gutless act of vandalism.”

Mr Little, who lives in Watford, says he may risk losing his job at the Palmers Motors warehouse in Hemel Hempstead if he cannot find replacement travel as his car is unsafe to drive, he cannot afford to replace it and his insurance will not cover the costs.

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call the police non-emergency number 101, quoting the collision number 41D/A/29/2015.
