Mik Chinery, who lives in Well Road, said: “I got up this morning (Friday, August 11) at 6am and saw the three cars totally vandalised with white emulsion paint.

“It’s a very quiet neighbourhood here, not a lot goes on so it was quite a shock.”

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: “Police are investigating an incident in Pagham, Bognor Regis, in which three Ford Fiesta cars - one silver and two black - had white paint thrown over them.

“The offence occurred sometime between 5pm on Wednesday, August 9 and 6am on Friday, August 11.
