‘Hello, I wonder if you can help me please, ? Last night, Saturday 18th September ’10, a 4×4 vehicle reversed into my parked vehicle, a light blue Honda sports car at my home address, 1 Church Lane, Alstonefield, causing damage to the bodywork. My house is on the road leading down to the church and a line of vehicles were parked on there from early evening until approx. 9.30 pm (The 4×4 owner had the vehicle parked from before approx 7.00pm to 9.30pm) and I am assuming they were attending the concert that was being held at St Peters Church. Unfortunately, I do not know the full details of the vehicle that caused the damage other than it was a 4×4 in a ‘ Royal Blue ‘ colour, without the spare wheel on the rear door type possibly and the part registration may have been FD06 ???. It was the last car parked in the line on the right hand side facing the church and I would be very grateful if anyone could provide me with any information in order I can make contact with the driver, I am sure the incident happened inadvertently and the 4×4 driver is probably unaware that damage was caused to my vehicle. If any residents have any information regarding this incident, would you please contact me either on the above email  ddress or alternatively on my mobile number 07766078369. I realise this is probably a ‘ long shot ‘, but any information you can provide me with would be very helpful. Regards Brian Curtis
