A roofing company has been left infuriated after over £2,500 of damage was caused to one of its vans. 

The van, owned by C-Eco Roofing Ltd, was targeted on Lambs Lane, Cottenham. 

Carlo Celentano, managing director at C-Eco Roofing Ltd, said: “It happened between 10pm last night (Monday) and 6am today. 

“Every time it happened, we try to add more security, and I think those behind it learn about that and still get in.”

Mr Celentano believes at least one person was involved in the attempted break-in, which has happened to C-Eco Roofing around three times in the last five years. 

The company has previously been victim to similar cases while working in London, but the latest damage is likely to cost over £2,500 to repair. 

“We don’t know how many were involved; it is infuriating,” added Mr Celentano.
