Get in gear and tow this car away

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - PETE WIL­LIAMS York Av­enue Hayes

ANY­ONE who wants to grow the bor­ough’s big­gest tomato will have to ketch-up!

This im­pres­sive spec­i­men was cul­ti­vated by Pa­tri­cia Barker in her gar­den at Har­vey HAV­ING an aban­doned car out­side your house is no fun.

For the past six weeks, since 2am on July 6th we have had a Vaux­hall Meriva parked out­side our house, since then, it hasn’t turned a wheel.

Car­ry­ing out an online DVLA check re­vealed that although taxed un­til the end of this month, the MOT ex­pired on July 8.

Both the po­lice and Hilling­don Coun­cil have been no­ti­fied of its

pres­ence. Nei­ther seem both­ered by the fact that be­cause the MOT has ex­pired, the car is unin­sured.

Check­ing the VIN (ve­hi­cle iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber) online in­di­cates that the car is not stolen.

Do we have to wait, with this car parked out­side our house for another three weeks, un­til the tax ex­pires, be­fore ei­ther Hilling­don Coun­cil or the po­lice might con­de­scend to con­tact the owner or do some­thing about re­mov­ing it?
