Ram Raiders hit village post office

It is probably the last thing you would expect in a small village in rural sussex, but Ram Raiders using a stolen 4x4 vehicle, all but destroyed the Village Post Office by driving staight through the side wall of the building at 1.30am last Tuesday.

An eyewitness saw a number of men running around the damaged area, and leaving the scene in another vehicle before the police arrived.

Whilst the 4x4 used in the raid was seriously damaged and the building virtually destroyed, it is not yet clear whether anything was actually stolen, as when the building collapsed, the safe and counter area were covered with rubble.

It will take weeks or even months to fully repair the building, sort out insurance issues, etc. ...in the meanwhile, the owner of the post office will probably miss out on the busy christmas trading period as it is unlikely that he will be able to open again until the new year.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but there are a number of practical measures that could have been employed to prevent the attack from happening at all. For some practical suggestions on security options, visit: http://www.insight-security.com/solfind-005.htm
