The rear window was smashed and the doors and bonnet were missing.

Lisa said: “I had parked at the station because I went to Newcastle to see my daughter who is studying at university there.

“When I first came back to my car I was in my own world and I only noticed that the back door was gone.

“Then I walked around my car and noticed broken glass and that both doors and the bonnet had been taken, too.
