I used to have a classic motorbikes and there were very cheap to insure, most of the mopeds (scooters) that are stolen are used for crime or broken up for to supply cheap parts to couriers that use mopeds.

Re: SW11 mugged at knifepoint in front of our 3 kids

The Met Police have plenty of resources, they have more CCTV that any other police force in the world, they have state of the art helicopters flying over London ect but the culture within the Met is to blame the victims. I am surprised the Met didn’t blame you for having your children with you, they...

Re: Mother attacked for Rolex as her children run screaming for help

Re: Stolen land rover

Trackers are a waste of money, professional car thieves will have them located and ripped out of the vehicle within a few minutes. They also use a jamming devise to stop the trackers signal. The best defense against theses electronic devices thieves use is a steering lock that goes over the steering...

Re: Caution: White Ferrari @ Speed

It is the same on all the roads between the Commons, rat running so we are exposed to dangerous drivers and extra pollution. Our Mayor Saqiq from Tooting is going to ban canal boats and pictures of scantily clad models.

Re: Viking bike stolen!

My neighbours had two very expensive bikes stolen from their back garden, our gardens are not accessible from the back so the thieves must have jumped over a lot of garden fences to get in and get the bikes out. The police as usual were uninterested and more or less blamed them for not locking the b...

Re: Inaccessible leaking pipe under tiled concrete floor - help!

The plumber is right but the biggest problem you will have if getting the same tiles unless you kept some as spare. I would get a a diy person to find the leaking pipe, the plumber to repair it and the diy person to reinstate the floor and tiles. The diy persons rate will be a lot cheaper than the p...

Re: Wandsworth Garbage Trucks squirting filth onto your car?

I cycle to work every morning and I see it's waste from commercial business being picked up by garbage trucks not working for the council. The worst offending garbage truck had no livery on it. They are picking up those big wheelie bins from Northcote Rd and Battersea Ruse just after 5am even though...

Re: Chris Coghlan - A new, independent, centrist candidate for Battersea who opposes Brexit. Please support him.

I have lived in this great country for nearly thirty years and for the last fifteen I have witnessed the indigenous working class being vilified by the Liberal Elite. According to the chattering classes they are lazy and uneducated because they won't work through some dodgy agency, what will you do ...

Re: Has this Happened to you?

They are probably talking about the needles, these are the temporary steels that hold the wall above from falling down until the RSJ is in place on its pads. One can not knock a huge void out of a wall without supporting it above. The needles will more than likely have to be above the joists of the ...
