DJ, your brother and his wife have my sympathies vis-à-vis their car. It is a shame the culprits have not been identified.
But the inference from your post is that all travellers are thieves or "wrong 'uns". Whilst it is true to say that some thieves may happen to be travellers, it is not true to say that all travellers are thieves. As Billy has rightly said, travellers are indeed misunderstood (and vilified too).
I was about to play devil's advocate and say something similar to your input Gavin.
I know that there is a traveller site in Gervase Street, and it's not unreasonable to think that the car 'inspectors' originate there, but absent any cast iron proof, it could have any scally.
Peckham is not really known as a hot-bed of upright, law abiding citizenry, is it?
