Van filmed on CCTV pushing Dan Lassman's car from behind in Ranelagh Road, Sheerness

A motorist is appealing for information after a van driver was filmed pushing his parked car down the road.

The CCTV footage, which shows a white van pulling up behind a black Peugeot 207 before shunting it several yards forward, was taken in Ranelagh Road, Sheerness.

The car belongs to Dan Lassman, who lives in the street.

He said: “I had been in that day and I came out at about 5pm to get my son from nursery and I just knew I hadn’t parked my car there.

“So I asked my missus if she had driven it and she said no so I went to have a look and there were paint chips and scrapes over the back of the car.

“When it’s a fairly newish car, you don’t want people damaging it.”

There was also damage to the boot and rear bumper of the vehicle, which the 23-year-old bought about seven months ago.

Mr Lassman said he has permission to park in front of garages shown in the video from a neighbour who also owns the CCTV camera they checked to see how the car moved.

The dad-of-two added: “During the day it can be a bit of a free-for-all [on the road] because you do get a lot of people who park and walk into town rather than pay for a ticket or you get a lot of the staff in town but there’s quite a lot of free space.”

The incident happened just before 2.30pm on Monday.
