Vicky said she hopes the person who damaged their car is caught. She said: "We were working in the salon, we were really busy with clients. A man came in and asked if we owned a black Mazda. He told us it had been involved in a hit and run. He said the front tyre had been smashed up.
"We went to have a look, the car can't be driven. It had been smashed into, the tyre had come out and the car had come away from the pavement. The car is in a garage at the moment. We are both so frustrated and angry, someone must have seen something.
"I can't believe someone has done this. We live in Barnstaple and rely on our car to get to work. Family members are going to help us out. Shane's mum lives up the road from the salon and she has been very supportive, so has his sister.
"We hope whoever did this gets caught, someone must have seen something, we hope we can get the car fixed. We had to cancel all our clients for the day and close the salon to take the car to the garage."
If anyone has any information phone the police on 101 quoting log number 229.
