Just back from holiday and thought I should give an update. Since 23rd May there have been 3 breaks within the Business Watch area, 2 on Bristol Road and 1 on Lower Tuffley Lane on 23rd 27th and 31st. In all 3 cases the offenders were after either copper piping, copper wire or other scrap metal. As you can imagine serious damage can be caused to premises where such items have to be stripped out. In one of these incidents the offenders were reported to the police as persons behaving suspiciously and although premises were entered the offenders did not get away with the wire. Please remain vigilant and report any suspicious persons or activities to the police immediately – you might save your neighbour a lot of grief. If you wish to contact me about anything please do so by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and if appropriate I send out a message to all the other members.
