Estate agent shuts up shop

AN estate agent has had to shut an office after arsonists set fire to it twice in four days.

Staff at George Grundy Estates in Market Street, Farnworth, are mystified at the reason behind the attacks, which badly damaged the office.

The first attack happened last Thursday when someone set fire to the shop front.

In the early hours of Monday, the shop was attacked again when arsonists set fire to temporary boarding put up to secure the building.

Manager Nick OíBrien and the officeís three staff have been transferring the details of more than 100 properties on their books to the companyís Great Lever branch.

Notices were being put up on the shop shutters directing enquirers to the office in Rishton Lane.

Insurers have been contacted, but it is not yet known how long it will be before the Farnworth branch reopens.

The shop was badly damaged by smoke yesterday and the unoccupied flat above was also affected.

Mr OíBrien says he knows of no reason why the shop has been targeted twice within a week.

The estate agent has not had any previous trouble since opening two years ago.

"We will be looking into security as a matter of importance," said Mr O'Brien.

Police are investigating the attacks.

OK who did it???? :lol::lol:

Not an insurance scam to top up the months money!! :o

It would be interesting to keep an eye on this story, because you immediately assume it's an insurance job.

I mean, what would motivate anyone to torch an EA?

Erm.., on second thoughts ;)
