Photos of the incident show a variety of Range Rovers that have been doused in paint stripper or had their windows smashed with bricks. The cost of the damage is currently unknown.

Earlier this month, Land Rover Cardiff hit national headlines after an angry customer parked vehicles with slogans on outside the dealership.

Mike Cox claimed that Land Rover don’t honour their warranties – which was written on the vehicles – after he returned eight times to the dealership to fix a cooling system issue and didn’t believe he received the treatment he was entitled to. The story reached the BBC and other national titles.
