A FAMILY from Kidderminster has been left "raging" after their car was ransacked by thieves overnight.

A dark blue Vauxhall Zafira was parked at the garages in Gilbert Scott Way, off Harold Evers Way, when it was broken into some time between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

The thieves had smashed their way into the car through the driver's side window and damaged the radiator, stole the battery, and taken a Sat Nav and new Nintendo Switch Pokemon game, which had been purchased as a Christmas present, from inside the glovebox.

The car's owner Laura Aston said: "Last night while me and my family were sleeping some scumbag decided to break into my car.

"The car is totally ransacked inside - it's totally turned over. I'm absolutely raging.

"My partner went to take our son to school at 8.20am and noticed straight away the quarter panel window on the driver's side had been smashed in. They must have used that entry to get in.

"On the driver's side of the car, they had clearly used a crow bar to try and prize the door open but obviously had no luck.

"We noticed straight away the car had been ransacked - children's car chairs turned over, toys all over and things tipped out.

"We further looked and noticed that they tried to get into the bonnet through the grill, smashed my radiator and took my battery.

"My petrol cap has been taken also so we believe they have tried or have taken the petrol.

"We’re obviously devastated because of the inconvenience and the intrusion of our privacy."

Laura said her sons have been "shook up" by the break-in and has reported the incident to police.

Anyone with information is urged to contact West Mercia Police on 101.
