Group’s plea for support

A COMMUNITY transport group targeted by heartless thieves twice in just six months is calling for help to prevent future attacks.

Go START, based on Sudbury’s Chilton Industrial Estate, was targeted by catalytic converter thieves last week, causing £3,000 of damage to a new minibus, which was bought with two other vehicles using £100,000 from Babergh District Council.

Founder John Phillips said: “We really need some secure fencing to protect the vehicles, but it is just so expensive we can’t afford it. We are appealing for the community to support us.

“We have security cameras which have captured the thieves in the act, but we also need fencing to prevent them gaining access to the compound in future.”

A 15-seater minibus was also targeted in November.

Anyone who can help should call 01787 242116.
