And This Is The Damage
And This Is The Damage
This is what confronted me when I home to my flat. Fortunately, the bastards only took my laptop - but they did have a little rifle through my bedroom drawers, presumably for cash or jewellery. Frankly, they clearly weren't the brightest bunch. They took my laptop - but they didn't take my passport which was sitting on the desk right next to it... and given the age of my laptop, probably would be worth more on the black market, through the right contents. Now I've got the fun of trying to get my estate management company to sort out a new door to look forward to. Oh, and if you wondered how much it costs to get an emergency door repair man out after 10pm on a Friday night to fit a board over a smashed lock - ?260. Yeah, that'll be reclaimed from the estate management company's buildings insurance. But blimey.

Front Door
This photo shows that the front door is damage severely. The structure and the door have been compromised due to damage and needs repair. Either a new door frame or reinforcements added behind the locking mechanism. This door could easily be kicked in with little force. I do not know how the door got this way but being a house that is all girls we would feel better if the door and locking mechanism were up to safety standards. Code 4.11, Page 5.
