Police are reportedly investigating a car parking company near Gatwick after complaints that cars were damaged there.

Several Gatwick Sky Parking customers have told police their cars had thousands of pounds worth of damage, with vehicles severely scratched and covered in mud, the BBC reported.

No one was available to comment from Gatwick Sky Parking.

One customer claimed his car had damage worth £7,000 and another faced a repair bill of more than £2,000.

Gatwick has said the company is not on its approved operator list.

Gatwick Sky Parking operates by a ‘meet and greet’ service, taking passengers cars and parking them elsewhere, then returning them when they land.

Its website says cars are parked in a secure area.

Gatwick said it had no relationship with Gatwick Sky Parking and the company was not part of its Approved Operator Scheme.

The airport said: "We advise all passengers who are planning to park at the airport to use Gatwick airport's own on-site parking facilities.

"Gatwick airport also runs an approved off-airport parking scheme through which we endorse other parking companies in whom we have confidence."
