Our Transit van (BK09 WLL) was stolen from our driveway at 23:05 on 14 Jan – the same evening as the other vehicles mentioned. CCTV footage caught the thieves on camera and more CCTV from Latchingdon village tracked the vehicle with the thieves driving it. They came on foot to steel our vehicle but from where? Is this happening on our doorstep but no one asks questions anymore.

The audacity of it.

Loosing the van and its contents has destroyed our family business. A business we have worked so hard (and legally) to build up over the years. Wiped out in minutes without a care. Insurance doesn't replace the items that have sentimental value, items handed down through the family business that we'll never see again.

We need greater awareness of the problem and more support from the authorities to prevent this happening. It's life-destroying; it's not just about a vehicle being stolen.
