    Vehicle : 2.0l CDTi Bi-Turbo Insginia Sports Tourer

    Trim : Vx Line Nav Sri

    Engine : 2.0

    Year : 2014

    Default Someone has nicked my roof!!

    As above. Got up this morning and noticed through the front door, that my front gate was open. Funny i thought, it was closed last night (I went to bed at 01:30. So, i went out and shut it (at 06:00 - on my way to work); then i turned around to go back in the house and noticed that the lead flashing had gone! i thought.
    Someone had nicked the lead between me going to bed and me going to work, somewhere between 01:30 and 06:00.

    I phoned the Police from work at around 07:30, got a crime no. etc, rang the insurance and they wanted £100 excess!! So rang around a few mates and managed to get new lead flashing, ladders and 2 mates to help me put some new back up tommorow.
    P.S. 6 other people on the street were done as well. The police came around tonight to take a statement, but said there was really nothing they could do about it, other than record the crime. But hey, at least they showed up and knocked on all the doors in the street to do enquires. So good on them, they did all they could

    I'm posting this to say that for the sake of a 4x1.5 foot piece of lead - what is the effing point? I know that the persons responsible will have probably done a few more places, but if i had gone through the insurance, as some of the other people on the street have done, it would be costing me around £300 I've managed, because i can and have the friends to help me, repair it for around £60 (or will be doing tommorow)

    There are a lot of scum sucking, no good for nothing tw@ts around!



    I feel alot calmer for sharing this now.

    Trying to get a positive from an obviously bad experience, maybe you and your mates could do the other roofs, for a fee, to cover the cost of yours??

    I hope the police manage to get the scum that nicked it.

    The man hole covers and copper plaques from the local crematorium have gone missing round this area. Really makes me sick.

    Sorry mate but "proper" gypsies would not do that sort of thing, the "gypsies" your referring to are "travellers", they are the scum of the gypsie clans, proper gypsies try to keep as far away from scum like that as much as possible.

    If you mean the Irish ones that travel around in those odd looking horse drawn carragies? There were 7 of these illegally camped on land about 3 miles from here a year or so ago. It cost the land owner a fortune to get them moved and when they eventually did they left it looking like Baghdad.

    Naturally all aren't like that though. You get good and bad elements of all types of people.

    Agree though it's the ones that travel around in brand new transits towing brand new huge caravans that are the worst
