Not a good week, last week. My husband is a self-employed Locksmith.
After developing gear box problems, we had it towed to a small garage here in Slough. It was parked outside overnight when it was targeted along with the other vehicles there. This is the result...empty and burnt out. Luckily we remove most of the key equipment each night, like the key programming machines but still a lot left inside. Thankfully we are covered insurance wise, but the inconvenience and loss of work since has had an impact, but hopefully we will be up and running again in a few days thanks to my mum buying us another van and is happy to wait until the insurance payout. The police just gave us a crime number despite us telling them that whoever did it now has tools to get into houses and cars but they did not seem concerned one bit. Looks like the crime rate will go even higher.

How sad... There are some who for some reason just need to destroy. I am glad that you had taken many things from the van...but as you said...police are not concerned.Too bad. It is always the innocent that suffer. Your mum must be a treasure...
Best to you and hope there is no further problem.

If you were a MUSLIM Julie you would have better luck with the police.

OMG, just seen this image and read the sad story. I really hope everything works out well for you both real soon, your Mom is a real treasure and you must be so proud of her. The reaction of the police is unfortunately all too typical, but i guess the only positve side to that is it should mean more work for your husband.
