Vehicles belonging to Thomas & Partners estate agents have suffered a spate of vandalism.

The estate agents, with an office in Victoria Road, Deal, are due to open a new branch in Dover’s Castle Street.

People took to Facebook when Dover resident Aaron Elder, a former pupil at Archers Court, posed a question on the Dover for Dovorians page.

He said: “Anyone else notice the new estate agents in town, Thomas and Partners?

“Have you also noticed they have a lot of advertising on cars around Dover and Deal?”

He said several vehicles had had tyres slashed and/or windows smashed.

Over the space of three days, more than 50 comments streamed in, many of them saying they had seen incidents of vandalism to Thomas & Partners’ cars.

A spokesman at Thomas & Partners would not confirm that company vehicles had been vandalised, and police told the Mercury there had been no reports of vandalism.
