Two sisters say they have finished work to find an angry note from residents glued to their windscreens.

Ellie Newman from Whitefield and big sister Jordana Timeyin from Prestwich, park their matching Range Rover Velars on a street close to their work.

The only difference in their cars is one is white and the other is black, according to the MEN.

Ellie, 36, and Jordana, 39, both work at Loan Agency Bridgewater Acceptances, and park near their Whitefield office every day.

As a result, the pair say they have had notes left on their windscreens on several occasions including one which was glued to the glass.

The most recent note was discovered on Thursday (September 29). This time she said it had been stuck to her black Range Rovers windscreen using some type of silicone.

The note, written in black felt tip pen, read: “Please stop using this street as a car park.

“Residents are coming home from work/shopping and can not park on their own street!!”

But Ellie said she and sister Jordana are perfectly within their rights to park there, as they both pay tax.

She said: “There are no yellow lines.

“We work in the area and this is what we pay road tax for.

“Our offices have been there 20 years.

“This has happened about four times.

“We have had our car scratched and around four notes left, stuck on with superglue, gaffer tape and now silicone.

“This is criminal damage.”

Friend and colleague Rachel Shard, 41, said she used to park her own vehicle on another nearby street, but also suffered vandalism.

She said: “It was costing me to get my car repaired so I won’t park here anymore.

“I think it is jealousy.”

Ellie says she has logged the incident to the police online.

According to the official RAC parking guide: “It is perfectly legal to park outside someone’s house unless the vehicle is blocking a driveway or a wheel is over a dropped kerb.

“Other situations in which parking isn’t permitted include streets governed by residents’ parking permits or any of the restrictions outlined above, i.e. double yellow lines.”
