Burglar scaled scaffolding in Weston to break in to home

Daily Echo: Oslo Towers surrounded by scaffolding. Oslo Towers surrounded by scaffolding.

A burglar has scaled up scaffolding to steal from the seventh floor of a Southampton high-rise, leaving residents saying: “We told you so.”

Police believe at least one thief, possibly disguised as a workman, climbed up the scaffolding surrounding Oslo Towers in Weston to break into a flat through a balcony door.

Two PlayStation2 consoles, various games and fishing equipment were stolen.

It comes after residents of neighbouring flats raised security fears in March, when children as young as nine were seen risking their lives by climbing up 100ft high scaffolding.

People living in Hampton and Havre Towers warned it was too easy for people to get on to it and reported to police people prowling around the scaffolding at night, peering into properties.

The six tower blocks in International Way, Weston, are undergoing a £9m refurbishment programme to give them new heating, insulation and windows.

The council previously insisted the sites were secure with netting to prevent falls and access, and said it was residents who were climbing on to the scaffolding.

Woolston ward councillor Warwick Payne, then in opposition, said the council should look at introducing security patrols, and check it was doing everything it could to secure the sites, as it was important residents felt safe in their homes.

Last night Cllr Payne, now the council’s housing boss, said: “Crimes like this will not be tolerated on our housing blocks.

“The towers at Weston Shore were the first to be fitted with concierge systems, which include security cameras that show who is entering and leaving the buildings, as well as cameras that cover quite a lot of the area around the buildings.

“In the past they have helped secure prosecutions and we would be happy to work with police to see if that may be possible in this instance.

“The security at these towers is a lot better than it used to be, but if residents are concerned about security then we are happy to talk to them and look at the issue again.

“It is important that residents feel safe in their homes.”

Andrew Walcroft, 48, who lives on the 11th floor of neighbouring Hampton Towers, said: “It doesn’t surprise me one bit that this has happened.

“I’ve said from the word go that we should have some extra security here but no one has listened.

“I’m scared of going out and leaving my flat empty, and I’m not the only one. Everyone is worried about it.

“But there is no deterrent at the moment to stop people doing this.”

Police said a door that was forced to gain entry had been screwed shut by contractors during the refurbishment. The break-in happened between June 13 and 11.30am on Saturday.

Detective Constable Tom Hewitt said: “There’s a good chance people will have seen whoever did this burglary climbing on scaffolding to gain entry to this flat.

“It’s likely they wouldn’t have been dressed in the same way as the workmen so may have stood out.

“I’d ask anyone who thinks they have seen anyone suspicious climbing the scaffolding between June 13 and 23 to contact me. I’d also like to hear from anyone else with information about the burglary.

“What the burglar did also means they put themselves in danger and potentially others too. I’d like to remind people not to climb the scaffolding for everyone’s safety.”

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call Det Con Hewitt at Bitterne CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Don't judge a book by its cover. Just because they may look grotty and scum from the outside does not mean they are inside.

I grew up in a tower block like this and my parents live there now... I am actually fed up with comments like this. It is what you make of it. Yes, ok, some people that live there might not be able to afford stuff. It doesn't make everyone the same.

Keep your comments to yourself and don't go offending people like that... People have feelings you know.

Tower blocks aren't all bad anyway. I've turned out fine! Rant over.

So let me get this right, the weston councillor in March said something should be done.

Its now the end of June and nothing was done?

I'd point out too that Cllr Williams, the Leader of the Council is also a Weston councillor.

You would have thought they would have done something!

Is this the same Cllr Williams that dealing with the sick member of his party! Sorry my mistake he is not sick he just disagreed with Cllr Williams and his policies.

Maybe Cllr Warwick is feeling unwell as well, I am sure that Cllr Williams will tell him when to report sick, and when he is cured.

we lived in meredith when we first got married, had 3 children there, who are now very successful, own their own homes and have never been in trouble.
The flats themselves are beautiful as are the lobbys, lovely and clean. I have been in many houses in so called better areas that have been filthy and the kids have turned out no good.

Why do you have to turn every issue into a Political argument? Labour are hardly responsible for some young scrote who sees easy pickings because it is laid on a plate for him. The scaffolding is essential for safe working, what do you suggest is an alternative?

Pot calling Kettle black comes to mind.
A Labour councillor made a great deal of how inept the security put in place by the Tory council was.
that same Councillor is now in charge of it yet no extra security?
Osprey I don't know where you live but I've lived in Weston not for long but I did live there.
I have family there now,
They were doing up the area near to the flats the local hero's got in & wrecked their work & attacked the machinery this work would have benefitted all of them but still wreck it.
When this scaffold was erected & Labour were kicking up I don't recall you attacking them & asking them the same question you've just asked me why not?
The builders are responsible for the scaffolding & surely they should provide security?
I said that then but this Labour councillor blamed the Tories so if it was the party in power then it must be the party in powers fault now surely?
