On the evening of Monday 28th Feb the brush was stolen from the Rubery area of South Birmingham at approximately 6.10 pm ( According to the CCTV footage of the robbery ).
More frustratingly the Ifor Williams 16ft beaver tail trailer the brush was strapped to also made a quick exit from the Hotel car park.
All appropriate measures were taken to ensure the trailer and its contents would be there for departure after breakfast on the Tuesday morning. Sadly, as demonstrated, if they want it bad enough it looks like they will take it.
Birmingham South police were very helpful at the time in promptly issuing a Crime number, however this does not compensate for the total inconvenience caused by the actions of certain individuals.
So needless to say, please be very wary about security issues surrounding any trailer, shed lockups etc…and maybe keep an eye out for any very cheap brush / trailer combinations.
