The substance poured over Eileen Williams' car.

Eileen Williams’ vehicle was covered in a corrosive substance while it was parked outside her home at West Court earlier this month.

She relies on the car to get to hospital and hospice appointments and it now needs a total respray costing £2,700.

The substance was also poured over the roof.

In the meantime, she will have to arrange alternative transport to travel to and from her vital appointments.
