Police launched an appeal for information after tyres were slashed on 26 vehicles in Ayrshire. The vandals ran riot at Craig Tara Holiday Park last week and targeted cars in the Golf Village and Kintyre View areas.

Laura Allan, of Shotts in North Lanarkshire, was staying at Craig Tara Holiday Park when all three cars in her party were targeted.

She had to pay £230.26 to fix three of the tyres on her own car which were damaged.

Craig Tara is one of two holiday parks that Haven owns in Scotland.

Despite their popularity, Laura Allan branded their customer service “a disgrace”.

Laura said her and the family went to bed at around 10:30pm and hear her mum’s car alarm going off.

She said: “We went and checked and there was nothing there so never thought anything else of it.

“We went back to bed and within five or ten minutes somebody came and chapped the door saying that they had been sitting in their caravan and heard a tyre pop and went out and realised they had a flat tyre.

“We went out to check our mum’s and realised she did have a flat tyre.”

Laura went over to check the other vehicles, including her own car and her sister’s, and found they were both flat too.

The group phoned security and were told to head to reception in the morning, where they received police incident numbers.

Ms Allan continued: “There was a whole queue of us and they just handed me a yellow sticky note with the police incident number on it and a number for me to call a mobile tyre company to change the tyres.

“Most of us were in private owned caravans and we had to liaise with the owners to see if we could stay longer to get sorted or not, and (reception) said if we can’t stay in the caravan we can sit in the Live Lounge which is their main function room.
