Damage by White Van

We received this yesterday from Saskia T:

White Van  various damage

This afternoon, between 13:00-13:30 approx., a white van(unmarked?) caused damage to a propertyalongCreamery Lanetrying to negotiate a corner,as well as damage to the Creamery Green after trying to reverse firstup Monsdale Lane,then back down and again reversing up Creamery Lane as far as the top of the Green taking chunks out of the Green and leaving scrape marks on the road. The driving standard was clearly appalling.Unfortunately I didn’t get to the road in time to talk to the driver (plus 1 passenger?)nor tot ake the registration number. I could only watch the van disappear in the distanceI got the impression that they hadn’t reached their destination and simply gave up.

Does anyone know who this could have been, did anyone expect goods but didn’t receive them? The firm / driver of this van really needs to know that their actions are totally unacceptable.

Thank you to Richard T for sending us this photo of the damage to the Green
