I woke up Saturday morning 3.30am to the sound of a white Ford transit containing four men ram-raiding the parking meters in our street (the large meters that print tickets and have solar panels on top !). They then put the whole meter in the back of the van. This happened to four meters, resulting in smashed pavements and bent lamposts - not to mention parts of a stolen van left lying all over the road. The activity took about 15 mins and despite two 999 calls - the Police were not interested !
These parking meters cost about £6000 each ! Is Soutwark spending their valuable resources relacing these meters for it to happen again ? Has anyone else experienced it ?
