A LUXURY car dealership has stepped in to help a 19-year-old girl after her car was tipped onto its side by a group of teenagers in Chapelford.

The managing director of supercar sales company Vanrooyen, Martin Rylands, spotted a Facebook post from the victim’s mother and offered to help.

Emily Reid said she was gobsmacked as she left her house that night and saw a big group of teenage boys running away from her tipped-over car, which was brand new and had only been with her for three weeks.

Emily studies psychology at university in Liverpool and uses her car to travel there and for work as a delivery driver.

Mr Rylands said: “There’s enough negative stuff going on in the world right now without a 19-year-old not being able to work or go to uni because some scumbags are bored.

“I just thought running up to Christmas this young girl is probably going to have to spend half a months wage, maybe more, getting her car fixed when it’s not her fault.

“I just didn’t think it was right so we stepped in.”

He offered Emily a courtesy car for the two and a half weeks her car was being repaired at one of the company’s specialist body shops.

He said: “The body shop we use is very good so it’s had a really good job, you wouldn’t be able to tell it’s been fixed which is what I wanted.”

Emily said she was beyond relieved by Mr Rylands' offer of help, calling him a ‘lifesaver’ and buying him a bottle of Jack Daniels in thanks.

Mr Rylands added: “There’s been a bit of trouble on Chapelford before and nothing seems to be being done about it.

“The police said we just can’t do anything because they’re all 13 and 14; there’s no consequences that’s the problem."

The night the incident took place has since been labelled ‘mischief night’ due to the high volume of police call-outs for anti-social behaviour, with the police even issuing a dispersal notice.

Police also made a statement of stern warning and asked parents to call their children home, which said: “Positive and robust action will be taken."

On Friday, officers called for more help from members of the public to catch those responsible.

Dispersal orders were introduced as part of the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003 to provide police with the extra powers to break up groups of two or more people causing a nuisance, harassment or distress.
