My son and his wife and family have been saving hard and selling precious belongings[including my sons precious motorbike] to buy every single brand new tool so that one day soon he would be able to start his own business. Last night a thief prowled the road he lives in, he was trying handles on cars and houses searching for things of value. Even though the van belonging to my son was locked securely and nothing at all was in sight my son went to get some tools out of it this morning and every single thing of any value had gone! there is only 1 small scratch that wasnt there before and no sign of breaking the locks ect. and so therefore it looks as if he had some sort of key ect. as thats the only way he could have got in.yes i know in hindsight he shouldnt have left any tools in the van but hindsight is a wonderful thing and he wasnt expecting a scumbag thief. luckily my other son son lives opposite him and has put up cctv and has actually captured footage of it all. the thief also left a torch at the scene and this is now with the police. apparently there were loads of thefts last night within an 8 mile radius. Unfortunately the police arent going to be able to do anything in the short term and my poor son and his family are left heartbroken, so sad, and angry that everything they were dreaming of doing has now gone down the drain.
if everyone of my friends donated £2 it would go towards buying all these tools back again and help restore their faith in our community
