It used to be that if it wasn't locked down it was nicked, now its just nicked however secured it is.

These bastards need to be hammered because they are often very close to putting lives in serious danger, especially when they steal the copper wiring from hospitals and train tracks.

Take your pick who's doing it, Pikeys, Eastern Europeans or home grown thieves, its all the same..

It was a nightmare i pass the spot on my way to work traffic down to one lane .
Still working on it at 4am on my way home and the cables they where dragging down the manhole looked about 1 inch thick .
My missus is a district nurse and the phones where down at her office for 3 days nightmare as they have a few pallative patients {dying}that they look after

Yes, as said these bastards need a kicking, the hardship and danger they cause is dire, courts need to treat them as possible manslaughter cases depending on the cable network.

Just thinking "oh they have backup generators" is fine but they don't cover the whole hospital in many cases.

We had some guys here localy who decided to nick a valuable peice of copper.

They succesfully dug the cable out of a three foot trench, 'un'fortunaly it was a cable comming from a 250KV substation Smile 

The guy cut the cable very well and went off with a flash and a big bang. He had a big gypsy funeral.

 Trouble is that his uneducated friends will never learn.  They love to travel, never learn to read or study science, only learn to steal, rob and nick copper cables, every now and then they go up in a big puf of smoke.

Hope you all are enjoying the warm weather while it lasts.

Take care all,

Lockedout
