Well I phoned home and I was pretty alarmed to hear the news. Someone had tried to saw off the window that opens up to the back of our flat 3 nights ago.
They clearly hadn’t succeeded and left the window half sawed off without the flat being opened and vulnerable to full theft.
It was pretty distressing to see this as I’ve never experienced this before. Also as I am not in London right now and was only informed about this via the family, there’s not much I can do right now. The police did eventually come and also sent someone to do forensics to get fingerprints. But as it had been raining all day fingerprints were out of the questions now.
So a bit more cautious of these things we move on, knowing that we were not the only ones to have been broken in…there were other incidents on the same night in our area too.
