Car dealer sorry after customer’s shock find
Evans Halshaw apologises to a customer who found a joint in her car after it had been serviced
September 10, 2014
Donna Connellan made the shock discovery after her Vauxhall Zafira had been in the workshop, saying: ‘When I got the car back I noticed a cigarette on the driver’s seat. I don’t smoke so at first I thought it was a normal roll-up cigarette.’
Mrs Connellan showed the cigarette to her husband, Gary, and they quickly worked out that it was in fact a cannabis joint.
The mum-of-two told the Post: ‘We contacted the garage to tell them what had happened. I just felt really let down. It’s disgusting.’
A spokesman for Evans Halshaw Nottingham said the company had apologised to Mrs Connellan and that an internal investigation had resulted in disciplinary action being taken telling the paper: ‘We have taken the appropriate steps to ensure that we do not have a repeat of this regrettable individual error.’
