Tyre slasher targets EWN marketing executive’s car.

A CAR belonging to a Euro Weekly News commercial executive on the Costa Blanca south has been targeted in a suspected deliberate attack.

Having spent 45 minutes chatting with a valued client, the executive returned to their car, which had been parked in Dona Pepa, Quesada, at around 11am on Tuesday, April 27, only to notice a flat tyre.


“I walked around to the passenger side and that was flat too. I thought how strange it was, and was absolutely shocked to see they had both been slashed, it had been done deliberately.”

The devastated marketing agent’s car was not the only one parked in the public car park, there were cars either side, but these hadn’t been touched.

“The car park wasn’t full, but it certainly wasn’t empty, and only my car which has the Euro Weekly News logo on the side, was targeted.”

Despite asking around, nobody had seen anything.

“I’m absolutely furious and can’t believe someone would do this.”

It’s been a difficult time for the marketing agent who has been with the company for six years, having been involved in a car accident last month which meant they were unable to work.

“It’s really upsetting, times are extremely hard for everybody at the moment without having to pay out €160 because of spiteful vandals. It’s in times like these that we should all be pulling together, not setting out to deliberately cause hurt and financial problems for one another.

“Nothing like this has happened to me before, and I have no doubt at all that it was deliberate,” they added.
