Worrying damage at local riding stables – did you see anything?

Stevie sent me the following important appeal:

Hi Bob

People of Brownhills and surrounding please keep your eyes peeled! 
Stevie Ansell Riding Centre needs your help! 

Urgent Appeal:

At some point in broad daylight this afternoon two padlocked gates securing our fields on Engine Lane, Brownhills have been rammed off with a vehicle..  

One green gate easily accessed directly off top of Engine Lane the other would have taken a fair few manoeuvres off the beaten path to achieve target! 

We are currently awaiting CCTV coverage of whole area – so nothing proven yet – but a silver Shogun was spotted and alerted several workers regarding suspicious activity this afternoon. Reg and descriptions to follow if formally linked. 

Nothing has been disturbed, stolen or damaged so we can only assume that they were either disturbed – or plan to come back maybe to – 2Flytip – Steal or for any other illegal activity.

Please contact me, Stevie on 07950 314091 with any information or sightings – All information helps. 

Confidentiality assured. 

Share the hell out of this post in the case that they may be ‘casing’ other yards too!

One thought I have had is maybe it was illicit, illegal off-roaders. But I have no idea – what has occurred to me though is that how bad this could have been had horses escaped due to the damage? It doesn’t bear thinking about.

Stevie’s stables do a huge amount of great work, and it’s terrible that anyone would target them and cause hardship and further work to the hard working folk that keep the place running.

Please come forward with any information you have. If you don’t want to speak to the  Stevie or the Police directly, drop me a line on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com and I’ll pass the message on in total confidence.

You can also contact Walsall Police by dialling 101 (999 in an emergency, obviously) or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
