A CAR owner has been left raging after a group of “out-of-control” teenagers flipped his prized three-wheeled vehicle onto its side.

The 25-year-old motorist was left stunned to find his three-wheeler Rialto lying on its side outside his home in Port Seton yesterday evening.

The man, a Parcel Force employee, posted pictures of the upturned red vehicle on a community Facebook page asking for any information on the culprits.

He said: “Reliant Robin attacked – a group of kids hanging about the grass circles [and] apparently flipped my Reliant over.

“Never saw till 30 mins after – they must’ve been strong.

“Not much damage but hopefully the parents see this and can have a word with their child. Anyone know or saw anything please give me a message.”

Locals were also left angry at the damage caused by the gang, but some friends could not help but have some fun at the owner’s expense.

One said the gang's behaviour was "an absolute joke”, while another described it as "awful”.

Another resident said: “This is terrible. No respect for property. But I can’t stop laughing. Can imagine your face.”

And a fourth added: “Wouldn't have happened if you had four wheels.”

Speaking yesterday, the owner confirmed he had contacted the police regarding the incident but added that he held out little hope of catching the culprits as there was no CCTV in the area.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police were called at about 7.15pm on Monday following the report of vandalism to a car at a property on Inglis Avenue, Port Seton.

“Enquiries are currently ongoing to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident.”
