A couple have hit out after a quad bike hit-and-run left them hundreds of pounds out of pocket and left their car an insurance write-off.

Amy Smith and partner Calum Griffin were shocked when the vehicle was hit by while parked outside their Berwick Road home in Greenock last week - just months after a similar incident.

The two collisions have cost the pair almost £500 in repairs.

They say that this is money they had planned to spend on their five-month-old son Samuel or use to go on holiday.

Both incidents were caught on CCTV cameras at a nearby business, but the culprits have not yet been tracked down.

Glasgow Times:

Amy told our sister title The Greenock Telegraph: "The CCTV at the pharmacy did catch them last time but we couldn't see the number plate.

"Hopefully that won't be a problem this time since it happened during the day.

"It's money out of our pocket to repair the cars - it's cash we could have spent on our son or used to go on holiday.

"There are a lot of dirt bikes and quads up here that aren't road legal, it could have been one of them.

"The bikes have been quite a problem up here, driving close to the playparks and the chemists.

"There are a lot of young kids around here and we wouldn't want to see people driving carelessly."

Calum, whose family have lived in Larkfield for decades, said he was disappointed that the culprits did not come forward to take responsibility.

He added: "My dad lived in this house for 20 years before us and nothing like this happened even once before, never mind twice.

"It's not nice, you'd expect someone to let you know if they've hit your car.

"I just hope it doesn't happen again."
