Charges filed after dashboard cam catches man keying Aston Martin sports car

A man accused of keying an Aston Martin in a supermarket car park in Hackney will appear in court next month.

Gary Brissett, 48, is alleged to have caused £9,000 of damage to the luxury vehicle on Morning Lane.

The incident, at around 10am on June 19, was caught by a dashboard camera on the V8 Vantage, according to police.

The motorist had parked the luxury vehicle in a supermarket car park on Morning Lane in Hackney, east London, as he went shopping on June 19 at around 10.30am.

A Yard spokesman said: "Moments later, a tall black man approached the car pushing a baby in a pram.

"He took out a bunch of keys from his pocket and scraped them down the passenger's side of the vehicle, causing £9,000 worth of damage."

Police then released the footage and a photograph of the suspect, and appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

Brissett, of Clissold Road, Hackney, has been charged with criminal damage to a motor vehicle and is due to appear at Thames Magistrates' Court on September 4.

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked. It was a challenging time for everyone and the uncertainty around what I should have been doing as a teacher made it harder.Diary of an Irish teacher: I want to get back to work.
