If you do end up going to the Ministry, can I advise that you take care where you park your car. I have lived around the ministry for a number of years and the car crime around there is getting worse every week, to the point that it is now like clockwork. Every Friday or Saturday night depending when they put on that "rukas" for the local drug dealers. I first wake up to the sound of breaking glass, then later again to gasps when the owners return to their vehcles.
The police have given up on the subject and when you try to report it they just say that "there is very little chance of us catching them...do you want to report it?"......
I was a bit surprised by the post above as I live on Southwark Bridge Road near the Ministry and was just commenting at the weekend at how little car crime there seemed to be! There are always loads of cars parked outside our house on Friday and Saturday nights for the club and I've never seen or heard any problems (and I am a bit of a curtain twitching nosey neighbour!). Perhaps the fact that its a reasonably busy road makes there be less crime there.
Saying that I'll probably come home on Friday to a pavement covered in broken glass!
