TWO men were caught on camera pouring what appears to be paint over a parked car in Southend.

The incident took place during the early hours of Friday morning, between 12.53 am and 1am.

The hooded men are seen walking towards the vehicle which was parked on a driveway, pouring the substance on each side of the car over the roof.

The owner of the vehicle, who believes this is a targeted incident, is appealing for witnesses or anyone with CCTV or a Ring doorbell in the Harcourt Road / Boston Avenue area, in Southend.
