Austins, Mor­rises and Tri­umph dam­aged by drug-smok­ing van­dals – and they leave a £30k re­pair bill

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - CLASSIC CARS FOR SALE -

A22-strong col­lec­tion of clas­sic Bri­tish cars has been wrecked by cannabis smok­ing thugs. Austins, Mor­rises, a Singer, and a Tri­umph have been trashed by thugs af­ter they broke into a set of units in Malvern, Worces­ter­shire. Win­dows were bro­ken, roofs were caved in, and wing mir­rors smashed.

Col­lec­tion co-owner Will Roberts dis­cov­ered the trashed units, and es­ti­mates it will cost at least £30,000 to re­pair the dam­age.

He says: ‘To see our pride and joys pulled apart left me in huge shock, it didn’t com­pute. There were bags full of crisp wrap­pers, drink cans, and even a bong, so we’re pretty sure it was young peo­ple. Our col­lec­tion seemed to be safe. How wrong we were.’
