The homeowner was woken up again around 1am.

She added: I woke up to more noises and this morning I saw my lodger’s windscreen had been smashed.

‘I am bemused as to why a group of young people have gone around at night and systematically destroyed people’s cars.

‘At the end of the day it is just cars but it is inconvenient and causes people a lot of problems.’
