We live just off Bermondsey Street and the communal front door to our building is constantly being damaged by someone trying to pry it open.
I arrived home last night to find three large gouges in the woodwork where someone had tried to break in.
Everyone should keep an eye out as I doubt it's just our building that they are trying to get into.
I live off Bermondsey Street too and our communual door has met a similar fate. It is steel framed glass door and someone once tried to drill out all the surrounding screws so they could gain access.
It drives me totally insane that other residents don't always ensure the door is shut properly. Many a time I have come home to find it wide open.
On a related note, the entrance to our building is secluded and there is a large brick planter. I often find packages stolen from the doorstop of other addresses and ripped open to be stolen or discarded if no resale value. I once found someones wedding photos (not stolen) and last night two boxes of wine that someone had delivered. Of course the wine had been stolen...
We lived in a tower block Sally many moons ago..the lifts served alternate floors, walking from the ninth to the eighth found that the brass handles were missing to access one landing..opened my front door a week later to find some guy jumping backwards, he was trying to get the other two off! coming home last week, the subway handrails were partially removed..don't know what metal they were made of though, scrap metals seem to be increasing all the time due to the scarcity of supply.
