Or go into poundstretchers and ask for Danny”
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Granny. Things are getting worse when someone would steal such a thing; it’s obvious what it is and does — and who would need it.
Nobody would steal this — surely not! What for? scrap? It just seems to unlikely to me that someone would stoop so low.
Maybe it was a daft kids’ prank.
Kilmarnock Road is the main road, full of pubs, shops, bus stops, restaurants, clubs, all interspersed with doorways to the “Common Close” stairs and corridors for the flats/ apartments above. So if it was a daft kid’s prank, surely someone would have seen something and reported it.
Maybe things are getting worse when no-one has any information, or when people don’t have the values to go up to kids and ask what’s what. Shame on us all.
