DVLA workers were left stranded at their offices when an angry motorist slashed the tyres of over 40 cars. The incident happened at the DVLA centre which hands out fines and penalties for speeding drivers.

"We came out of work and every car in the road had its tyres slashed - it was unbelievable," said one civil servant interviewed by the Daily Telegraph.

"Someone had gone along and done two tyres on every car. There must have been 40 cars involved.

"No one could move and people were left stranded, nobody could get home. It's going to cost me £100 to get my car fixed. What kind of person would do this?"

A black Ford was seen in the grounds of the DVLA around the time of the attack. Police are appealing for information
