One then moves forward quickly to break several windows with what appears to be a blunt implement, whilst another stands back and watches.

The real cost of the damage caused would stretch to a thousand pounds had the cars not been fully insured.

The owner, Kiran Biring, says he and his family are "terrified" following the incident, which he believes to be a targeted act.

Multiple windows were smashed in the late-night incident

The damage included the rear passenger and rear window of one car, as well as the driver's seat window and rear window of the other.

Explaining the impact, Kiran said: "It would have cost me between £700 and £1,000 to repair the damage, but because I'm insured I just pay the excess… but my insurance premium is going to go up next year."

In total, four windows were smashed.

Enquiries are underway and investigators are urging anybody with information to call Kent Police on 01634 792209, quoting crime reference 46/155146/21.
