Shop Theft Up As Economy Weakens In Midlands

Former Ghurkas act as sheriffs to deter robbing hoods at Nottingham Ikea store

18 April 2006 13:59

An Ikea store in Nottingham that has been hard-hit by crime has turned to five former British Army Gurkhas to protect its property.
After suffering numerous car crimes, theft and other offences, the Swedish furniture retailer drafted in the new security guards three weeks ago.
Since the retired Nepalese servicemen – who have kept the peace for the British in the Falklands, Belize and on the border between Hong Kong and China –
started work at the store in Nottingham there have been no reported incidents.

It goes to show that when there is a problem you address it head-on. HPI should be dealt with by similarly aggressive tactics: 8% IR. :D

How about a Ghurka in every branch of Foxtons? They could twit an agent broadside with their machete every time there was a hint of underhand dealings.

'twit' I mean, the edit isn't working :lol:

twit twit twit twit :blink:

I'm flummoxed - my t-w-a-t-s are being replaced with twits
