A HOMEOWNER has released CCTV footage of the moment a vandal poured acid on his Range Rover.
The attack caused £3,000-worth of damage to the paintwork on Brian McPhillips’ car.
The footage, filmed from his house in Prestonpans, East Lothian, shows a man wearing a grey hoodie walk up to the motor.
He can be seen pouring a tin of “corrosive gel” on the roof of the vehicle.
Mr McPhillips has no fewer than three CCTV cameras attached to his home, all of which captured the attack on the early evening of November 13.
The 42-year-old garage owner said: “The insurance company were out yesterday. They said the car was beyond economical repair.
“That’ll be it written off. It’s the recovery vehicle so that destroys that business.
“It’s not just the car being damaged. I can’t think why anyone would do this but it certainly looks like it was deliberate.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “We can confirm this incident of vandalism took place. Police Scotland are currently appealing for witnesses”
