SOUTHSEA residents are appealing for CCTV cameras to be fitted in a street which has been hit by a spate of car crimes.
As previously reported in The News, hooligans have ripped off and smashed a number of wing mirrors in Chelsea Road.
The latest attack, last weekend, saw at least five damaged vehicles being reported to police, with claims there were many more affected but that were not raised with Hampshire Constabulary.
Now, two of the victims of the attack, Alan Gregory, a disabled 70-year-old, and his wife Jackie, 63, are urging Portsmouth City Council to take action and install CCTV cameras in the street.
Jackie said: ‘It would be a deterrent. It won’t stop it but it would make people think twice about doing it.’
