A Llanelli parking row escalated to disgusting levels when a car owner found dog mess smeared over the handles and windows of his vehicle.
Pete Harris - who lives in New Street - said he had been parking on Derwent Street because it was the nearest parking he could find.
Shortly after parking in the area he started to find anonymous laminated notes attached to his car.
One read: "As a non-resident please find somewhere else to park. Be considerate to the people who do live here. Thank you."
Mr Harris continued to park in the area as there were no restrictions.
"As a tax payer and someone who pays their road tax it's my right," said Pete.
"I heard nothing from them for a few weeks and then walked to my car to drive to work one morning to find dog poo smeared on both car door handles preventing me from entering.
"Obviously this made me feel disgusted and horrified that anyone could do such an un-dignified act.
After washing off the excrement, Mr Harris contacted the police, but the following week he discovered more had been wedged under the handles and had dried in.
"I felt very embarrassed having to turn up to a car wash with it on my car," he said.
"I reported this to the police again and this time have not heard from then since. I no longer park in the street."
Elli ward councillor Pam Edmunds said: "It's despicable that someone could do something like that and I'm glad he reported it to the police.
"People should be able to park wherever is convenient if there are no restrictions."
