The hunt is on to find a criminal who smashed into an essential worker’s “dream car” in a hit-and-run incident.

Support worker Kim Melanie left her home in Northfields near Eaton Park on the morning of February 26 to find her pride and joy – a black Fiat 500 – crushed. 

A spokeswoman from Norfolk Police confirmed that no developments had been made in the case, which saw Ms Melanie’s car written off.

Ms Melanie, 54, said she’d worked overtime for more than 18 months to fulfil her dream of owning a car of her own.

She added: “I’m really upset that someone has taken all my hard work away from me and drove away like it was nothing.”

A police spokesman said: “The alleged offending vehicle, described as a black Corsa with a silver petrol cap, left the scene in the direction of the Avenues.”

Those with information about the circumstances around the crash can contact Norfolk Police quoting incident number 489 of February 25.
