Group Discussions > More garden shed burglaries

I'm sorry to have to report that the garden shed burglaries are continuing. Last week some £2,000 worth of gardening equipment was stolen in broad daylight at Eccleston Square, SW1, by two men who cut through the locked double gates and drove their vehicle into the garden. A witness got their registration number, so we have asked the police to tell us if they have been able to trace the ownership of the vehicle. On the same morning equipment was stolen from Chester Square, SW1. Also gardeners today discovered that a mower and blower had been stolen from Brompton Square, SW1.

I'm hoping the police will update us on this new rash of burglaries and what steps they are taking to find the culprits.

Police are investigating an allegation of burglary from a garden shed at an address in Ecclestone Square, SW1.

Two men - described as white, aged in their mid-40s, one of them bald - were seen loading items into a white Peugeot panel van.

Police are urging residents to be vigilant and make sure that their garden buildings are secure.
