VANDALS have ripped the advertising magnets of a local business woman's car leaving her out of pocket.

Kelly Parker parked her car on Thomas Street, Darfield on Monday evening.

When she returned at 10.20pm the magnets that stick onto her car to advertise her business had been ripped off and shredded.

She said: "Now, just before Christmas, I have to go to the expense of replacing them."

Anyone with information should call 101.
