Compensation claims for a car accident caused by a missing drain cover will need access to Telford and Wrekin no win no fee* lawyers
The district of Telford and Wrekin is located in the West Midlands of England and the district has had a number of drain covers stolen from its streets recently. Roads in the areas of Broode, Priorslee and Hollinswood in Telford have had their drain covers stolen on the days of August 7 and 8 according to police. West Mercia Police have said that they have good reason to believe that the thieves who stole the drain covers specialise in stealing items and selling them as scrap metal. The drain covers are heavy and would have needed a special vehicle to take them so it is thought that the thieves have stolen similar items that could be sold as scrap metal.
With the roads in these areas left with large holes and thus, a dangerous road hazard, the Telford and Wrekin County Council has had to quickly fill the hole left by the stolen drain covers temporarily and then pay for replacement drain covers which will cost over two thousand pounds.
West Mercia Police have called for anyone who has information on the stolen drain covers or about the people responsible for the act to contact them and said that the public taxpayers are hurt by this act as their taxes will have to be used to pay for the replacement of the drain covers.
A Telford and Wrekin Council spokeswoman has said to the media that they have made sure the areas that have had their drain covers missing have been made safe and that the drain covers that belong to them will be replaced with the other owners of the other drain covers being informed of their status. The spokeswoman has also called for anyone who has seen a drain cover missing on the roads to contact the Telford and Wrekin Council.
