I would have to agree with you with regards to the police, unfortunately for one reason or another smaller crimes are just not looked into.

Hopefully the owner calls so they can follow it up.

What a ******. I think some prank calls to number are required. Saying that if it was mine is phone up pretending I need some work done. They'd be paying for the damage caused or they'd be getting flattened.

Well done you for taking the time to help another person out. It helps restore my faith in humanity.
wait for the owner to contact you, and then post it on social media. He deserves the sack for bringing his company image into disrepute, and should be prosecuted for criminal damage.
keep dialling 101 - crime like this shouldn't go unpunished

Well done for not just turning a blind eye MSwiss.

It's a sad reflection of the lack of police resources that 'petty' crimes are dismissed out of hand.

Thanks for all the comments, just couldn't let it go. One of the receptionists made me a tea saying " that's so nice of you to try and help" it's sad in a way but I know why people don't get involved as they have no idea what they are up against.

101 won't work for me, just says the number you are calling is not recognised.

That is pretty sad, I wonder if it has anything to do with him not being able to get in the bay? he is on double yellows.

Hats off to you MSwiss for trying to help!

I'd get this on their social media pages, along with raising a complaint with the Met.

Are you sure that Renault is not electric. Looks like a ZOE to me?

Don't think they have social media. I hate scum like this

The car that's parked there can't be an electric, and he obviously wanted to charge his electric van which he couldn't. Even if the car is electric but not using the charging point the guy has serious mental issues to do this
