A PSNI spokesman said: "When he came back, what he saw was frankly revolting and disgraceful.

"Somebody had pulled the front number plate off, scraped and scratched the handle for the boot. They had then rubbed a banana over the front windscreen and finished by urinating on the door handles.

"It is hard to imagine the mentality of people who would do this to somebody's car, or find this funny.

"Disgusting, revolting, senseless are all words that spring to mind."

Officers are urging that anyone with information get in contact.
