Whilst heading out on Saturday I came across two of our fine local youths attempting to steal a black Piaggio scooter. They'd inserted a self tapping screw in the the ignition barrel.

Anyway, I invited them in fairly robust terms to leave the scooter alone (I told them for 'f' off) and they had the good sense to do so... They also very kindly didnt attempt to stab me with the screwdriver they were using.

I called the Met and to their credit they arrived before I'd finished the 999 call...

So folks keep an eye out and if you own a black Piaggio scooter with a damaged ignition barrel now you know why!

Well done!

Dockhead would be a good place for public stocks.

Gosh! Good for you!

I'm amazed the police turned up so fast. I reported a young man trying to break into a car outside my house and gave a description while he was out there but they never showed.
