    That is bad but instead of getting involved myself I would have a word with family member of hers if you know them save coursing trouble for myself

    Not your problem tenchy. I know it's wrong, but you could get grief over it. Could you not tell a relative of hers?

    its a sad part of our world that these things go on..

    its a shame that the police wont deal with it as a word with him would probably end it..and also the relatives..but what can you do really....?

    best not get involved at the end of the day..I know a darling old un who had her roof washed down and guttering supposedly done and would have cost her a fortune .

    ..I did give her my mates number for the gutter but she couldnt be made to understand that he was a pro tradesman and could be trusted she chose this other guy...

    the gutter is the biggest mess up ever...she used to put duct tape on it to stop it leaking and now she has it all new but it stll totally a joke the fall is backwards...

    and what ever he used on the roof has made a right mess of her plastic sills but not my problem..:D

    shes still a sweetie though nearly ninety and always a brew on..if only I COULD get past the fiver she pays me...
