Garage left ‘limping on’ after burglars strike

A WORCESTERSHIRE garage and MOT testing station targeted by burglars says it is ‘limping on’ and has praised other workshops for their help.

Badham Motors, in Honeybourne, Evesham, lost diagnostic equipment, tools and computers, as well as having two key presses plus its entrance door and frame damaged in the incident, which happened between 8pm on Saturday and 6.30am on Sunday.

The thieves also tried to break into a safe and forced a till open, but no money had been left in it.

Owner Samantha Badham told the Evesham Observer: ‘We’re open for business as usual but we’re limping on. The burglary really has hampered us. We’re still in the process of finding out what was stolen. I’ve contacted local garages around here to warn them of what has happened.

‘We need the diagnostics equipment as an approved testing station, but luckily local garages have been really kind and lent us computers so that we can carry on.

‘What’s happened has really highlighted the community spirit, with people offering to lend us equipment.’

West Mercia Police are urging people with information about the burglary at the family-run garage to contact them on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
