THE OWNERS of a Solihull mobility business have hit out at vandals who covered their shop front and others in graffiti, turning the whole area into an eyesore.
Alan and Marguerite James from the Solihull Mobility Centre (A M Mobility), Old Lode Lane, were shocked to find the damage when they arrived at the premises on Tuesday morning (September 15).
Mr James told the Observer: “It’s a right mess – we have been here 26 years and have never had anything like this before.”
He said many years ago a tag was etched into the glass window but police officers recognised it and arrested the culprit.
“This is on a different scale – they seem to have done the whole area.”
As well as other shops, a nursing home down the road was also targeted by the unsightly scribblings.
Mr James added he had heard from another business owner who disturbed the vandals saying they got into a silver Vauxhall and drove off.
“A lot of businesses are struggling at the moment and forking out to have their shop fronts painted is the last thing they need.”
Anyone with any information should call West Midlands Police on 101.
