    If they walked away and left the bin lorry there you should impound it ...

    BTW your link isn't viewable without a sign-in.

    The video works for me. What's the damage to your wall like?

    Nice quality video that I'm tempted, wish I had one for when the scaffolder dented my motorcycle in our back yard.

    you should be thankful you weren't composing a picture for the 'my bike in front a wall' thread at the time.

    I'd phone their depot and make sure the vehicle is checked for damage.

    Have you contacted the council about it, the bin lorry insurance should cover any repairs. They'd be quick to claim for property damage if the shoe was on the other foot, well at least our council would.

    Yes done all that and waiting for a brick layer to quote. None of it's a big deal really, but what has incurred my displeasure is that no one from Biffa has offered an apology, and that the operatives just buggered off without notifying us. The banksman even looks at the house to see if anyone is watching.

    First world problem really, I should've posted it in Mundane News.
