VANDALS tipped paint over a Portsmouth police car.
Police are searching for yobs who slathered paint over their Ford estate in Fifth Street, Buckland, on Tuesday afternoon.
Officers were parked in the area when the mess was made – between 4.45pm and 5.20pm – but did not catch the perpetrators.
They returned to their vehicle just before 5.30pm to find the tin of paint on its roof.
