Mr Davies said: "We've started to tally [the cost] up now and it's way over
"As you can appreciate, it's not the monetary value, it's the fact that it's less than 24 hours before Christmas and everybody had worked hard all year to provide these presents - really thought about what they were going to buy."And that's the really disappointing thing - how can people do that to you on Christmas Eve?"
The BMW was later found burnt out
The family said they had been amazed by the support of their neighbours who had given them presents and money."It's really really humbling and renews your faith in mankind after something like that happens," said Mr Davies."If there's anything positive to come out of it, it's the support we feel from the neighbours."
