Russell Page, 32, took his Vauxhall to a local dealership, where he was given an employee's car to drive for the day.

But when he opened the Vauxhall Adam's boot, he found drugs, king size Rizlas and an assortment of belongings - including a half-empty bottle of wine.

Dad-of-two Russell says despite reporting the illegal substances to Eden Vauxhall in Camberley, Surrey, they did not go to the police.

He said: "I took my car in for a full service at Eden Vauxhall on Thursday 14 - I've been in loads and I have two cars with service plans from them.

"I went in with my three-year-old son and my wife, and they'd run out of courtesy cars so they gave me a young female member of staff's one instead.

"She handed me the keys and said it was a bit dirty inside but that was an understatement - there were lighters everywhere and ash on the dashboard.

"I went to the shops and when I opened the boot, it had a really strong smell of cannabis and there were two handbags in it, which I opened and found weed, a grinder, and a bag of white powder."

Russell claims he was called back by group manager Mark Clifton, who arranged for him to take the car back to the dealership.

But he says when he returned on September 20 to discuss compensation, he saw the employee in the showroom.

He added: "They said I'd get a good deal on a new car as compensation because they knew I wanted to change my current one.

"Mark got Matt to give me his car, a top of the range Insignia, while they did it, and told me the police would be involved.

"He left me a voicemail saying the girl had been fired but when I went back to get my car the next day, I saw her in leaving the showroom out the back.

Graeme Potts, founder and managing director of Eden Motor Group, refused to confirm the employee's name and whether or not she had been fired.

Graeme said: "The vehicle was not prepared in cleanliness terms as it was not a courtesy car, it was somebody's own car.

"He then returned to the dealership having detected a smell, and having investigated what it was found a bag in the boot.

"There was a holdall type bag, quite small, and in it was 3.4 grams of what is believed to be cannabis.

"There was no white powder in the car, there is a bag with a tiny bit of residue on the inside of it.

"The pictures we had taken at the same time have a bag with a tiny amount of residue and nobody knows what it is."


The 20-year-old woman is said to no longer work at the dealership, but it is not known whether she left or was fired.

Graeme added: "There was a long conversation in which Mr Page was not just abusive, but used extremely foul language to me.

"I have not disputed to him, nor anyone else, the fact there was a personal use quantity of drugs in a vehicle that was owned by our company."
