A WESTON father says vandals have dashed his chances of getting a job so he can support his family.Jobless Jamie Anstee, who lives in Chaucer Road on the Bournville estate, has had the tyres slashed on his red Vauxhall Vectra, which means he cannot travel to Clevedon where he has been offered the chance of work. Mr Anstee, aged 29, says two other residents also had their tyres slashed near his house over the Christmas period and another neighbour had his windscreen smashed.Mr Anstee's daughter Madison has been in and out of hospital recently because she hurt her head in an accident, so he is also worried about how to get her there if she falls ill again.The former Wyvern Community School pupil said: "I've lost count of the times this type of thing has happened in recent months."Eight months ago someone pierced the fuel filter on my car but I didn't realise until I was going along with Madison in the back."My car doors were also bent completely out of shape after someone tried to break into it. "I've been trying to scrape the £150 together to get the tyres repaired. "I had the chance of a job in Clevedon but of course I can't get there now.
