Roadworks on Rose Hill yesterday made drivers go through fresh bitumen. We did not think it was a problem at the time and parked for the day. This morning, when using the car (in a hurry!) again, we found the sticky tar over the bodywork, wheels and wheel arches of the car. Pebbles, gravel and grit on the road stuck to the wheel . The picture only just shows the problem - as the issue is more evident when you touch the material - which is think and very sticky!

It will cost time and money to properly remove this material from the car and we expect this to be covered by those who managed the roadworks.

Otherwise, please tell me where you can arrange for my car to be cleaned

Thank you
