Police escort for boiler engineer

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A 92-year-old woman was told she could not have her heating fixed until the engineer was given a police escort to her home on Sheffield's Manor estate.
    The Kier group, which does repair work on council housing, told Annie Tanton it was because their engineers had been stoned and assaulted on the estate.

    Kier apologised to Mrs Tanton but said it had a duty of care to its employees.

    An engineer later visited her home, accompanied by a police officer, and resolved the problem, it added.

    "I live on the Edge of the New Forest. Do you think Hants Constabulary will provide an escort for the pizza delivery guy incase he gets ambushed by a bunch of rampaging Grannies!!! :lol:
  2. W4nk is,nt it. We need a fcuking revolution in this country to sort it out !!! Christ knows what it,ll be like when I,m 92. We are on a very slippery slope.

  3. Lived one estate down from Manor and it's like Beirut of old there. Get in before the sun goes down as the night crawlers come out.
    A sad reflection of the building policies of the last fifty years and the total decay of the fabric of society.

    And the fact it's full of fcuking scumbags, sorry almost forgot that.
  4. Scumbags bred by our benefits culture and the most lenient penal code in the world.

    It is what this govenment desires and they want to make it even worse.

    I wont be here for much longer as I've been granted residency in Australia but I feel truly sorry for those who can't get out.
  5. Well said and good luck in Oz

    I was unemployed in Norfolk Park, Sheffield and on benefit but never felt the urge or need to stone heating engineers.

    Was there something wrong with me?
