Woman who ‘glued’ note on Range Rover parked outside home ‘makes no apologies’

A woman who stuck a note on the window of a Range Rover with a silicone-like substance insists she has done nothing wrong.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, said she is fed up with cars parking outside her house which made it impossible for a disabled friend of hers to visit.

She claims she already asked politely a number of times in previous notes and had enough when her disabled friend could not visit.

Ellie Newman, 36, from Whitefield, claims she discovered the note stuck with silicone on the windscreen of her car after she finished work last Thursday.

She and sister Jordana Timeyin, 39, who both drive Range Rover Velars in black and white, park their vehicles on a street close to where they work in Whitefield.

The siblings, who work at Loan Agency Bridgewater Acceptances, say they have had notes left on their windscreens on several occasions including being stuck on the glass with glue.

The latest note 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!!”

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

But the disgruntled resident said she wants to see more consideration for people who live on the street.

She said: “My friend wanted to visit, I was making him a dinner as he can barely walk now without a stick and can’t stand up to cook.”

“But he couldn’t come as he couldn’t park his car outside my house.

“Without being able to park right outside, he couldn’t walk down the street, so he couldn’t come.”

The woman said some residents have three cars if it is a family where both parents work and their grown up children also drive.

But she says the street, made up of Victorian houses, was not built for cars and there is no possibility of building individual drive ways.

She says the problem is exacerbated by people who don’t live on the street using it as a place to park their vehicles.

She said: “I am not a nasty person and would not do anyone a bad turn.

“But this has been going on for 12 months.

“There is a back to the shops where they work and I am sure they could park there. I make no apologies, I have not been rude or malicious.”

Ellie reported the incident on line to Greater Manchester Police.

The resident said: “It is not criminal damage, the substance I stuck it on with was easy to peel off. It was like a plasticine.

“It was a reasonable request, I was not rude. I just explained how things were from a residents view point.

“If you are parking there all day you must know you are causing a problem for somebody.

“I don’t like seeing how we have become a very selfish society.

“I have no time for it.”
