  • Redcorn confirm that this vehicle has been claimed by Rohim Ali, 23 Holly Corpse Stevenage, Herts, SG1 1QT

  • May have been claimed - when is Mr Ali going to remove the vehicle to private land to comply with his SORN notice. It must not be left here. It is in a disgusting state and has vermin. Can we ascertain what plans he has.

  • A guy came to tow the van away. He smashed the window glass is everywhere. All over the road. Tried to pump the tyres up but they’re all punctured. Then he put a Tesco carrier bag over the broken window and drove off. After an hour of trying to take it.

    When will this be moved? Surly he needs to be fined as its on a public road and SORN. therefore must be on private land.
