A CAR wrecker pleaded guilty to causing £38,000 worth of damage to eight high value vehicles, including two Porsches and a Mercedes.

Christopher Baker, 18, of Austin Avenue, Bromley, pleaded guilty to criminal damage at Bromley Magistrates' Court last Tuesday.

The ruined vehicles, with their bodywork scratched and tyres slashed, were discovered on the morning of December 8, last year, in Leas Green, Chislehurst.

They included an A type Mercedes, a Nissan Navara, two Land Rovers, two Porshe Carreras, a Dodge Ram 1500 and a BMW M3.

Police recovered blood from the scene and CCTV footage from the area showing Mr Baker committing the offence between 4.40 and 5.08am.

Officers arrested Mr Baker on suspicion of committing the offence on January 8 and he was charged on April 1. He made a first appearance at Bromley Magistrates' Court on April 15.

He is due to be sentenced at a date yet to be confirmed at the time of going to press.

Mr Baker is the brother of Paul Baker, who was killed in a fight outside the Lounge Bar in Whitehorse Hill, Chislehurst in May last year.
