'Don't pretend to be disabled': Mother, 25, and son, nine, with life-threatening heart condition return to car to find 'horrible' note and huge scratch after parking on double-yellow lines

The mother of a young child with a life-threatening heart condition has been left furious after a note was left on her car accusing her of pretending to be disabled.

Samantha Dunlop, 25, parked her mobility vehicle in Weymouth, Dorset, to take her nine-year-old son Liam to the beach for a day out.

The youngster has pulmonary atresia which entitles her family to a blue disabled badge.

But Miss Dunlop was left sickened when the pair returned to the car to discover a large scratch alongside a nasty note reading: 'you're not disabled'.

Police are investigating and treating the incident as a hate crime.

Liam, who has been in and out of hospital for most of his short life, is entitled to a blue badge for the disabled.

Vehicles displaying blue badges are able to park on double yellow lines for up to three hours, if safe to do so.

Miss Dunlop and Liam discovered the note on the windscreen and the large scratch mark across the driver's door when they returned to their car after spending around two hours at the beach.

The note said: 'You're not disabled, I am. You should not pretend to be disabled just so you can park your car. I have you on camera.'
