A cautionary message from a neighbour in Southdown Avenue

​”​On Thursday eve at 7.30pm I found two guys jacking up my hybrid car outside my house. I assumed they were after my wheels and chased them away, although they were so brassy they started by insisting​ it​ was their car not mine! I called the police but they arrived too late. A couple of hours later I got into the car to find they had actually succeeded in remo​v​ing my entire exhaust including the catalytic converter. Very valuable. One of the guys had a scouse accent, 5ft 10, early 30s, lumberjack hat. The other lurked in the shadows.​ Subsequently I have been told this is a new wave of car crime, so be aware.
