Reported via desktop in the Abandoned vehicles category anonymously at 00:35, Tuesday 5 October 2021

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3041984.

This car has been parked in a zoned area now for over two month and has had many many parking tickets. someone has started to vandalise the car. I have witnessed four guys turn ups on two occasion obviously with the intention of selling the car. They are basically taking up a zoned parking space for the point of selling car on Gumtree - see link https://www.gumtree.com/ p/ hyundai/ car-/ 1414685890. The parking spaces are rare enough in Norfolk Crescent and these guys are just using it as a garage parking lot.
