Policewoman Leaves For Work To Discover A Pig's Head On Her Car
We're only supposed to leave the house for exercise or essential journeys, and this is definitely not one of those situations.
Laura, a British Transport Police officer, said that she felt 'violated' after making the macabre discovery on the front of her car as she left her house at 5am.
The 24-year-old, who joined the police service at just 18 years of age, lives with her parents in Hackbridge, Surrey.
She left the house to go to work, but then dashed back into her house in tears after seeing the pig's head.
The Metropolitan Police said they have launched an investigation into the incident, and added that a 19-year-old man had been arrested in connection.
Laura's dad, Paul, told The Sun: "She was just sobbing. As a dad I'm just absolutely raging. Laura's only 5ft tall, there's nothing of her, this is the job she has always wanted to do since she was a child.
"What these fellas have done... to come round her home and put that on her car, she feels really violated. It's very sinister. She doesn't feel safe now in her own home.

"These guys may think this is a prank, but this is her house and she's off duty and she's just beyond herself on this.
"I feel like they're threatening my daughter."
He added: "These guys shouldn't have even been out the house anyway because of the lockdown.
"She's now worried that she's got to get rid of her car because it's been targeted. She relies on it to get to work. She's now got all this stress on top of the job she's doing.
"I'm at my wits end on this. Particularly at this time as well.
"Society needs to understand that it's a bad enough job they're doing when they're in uniform, but to be targeted off-duty, at night, in your own home, it's just disgusting."
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: "Police were called at 06.12hrs on Thursday, 2 April to a residential address in Hackbridge with reports that a pig's head had been left on a woman's car.
"Shortly afterwards at approximately 09:23hrs, a 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of a section s.4A public order offence (intentionally causing harassment, alarm or distress).

"The victim has been spoken to and will be supported as the investigation continues."
