More outboards being stolen - Trafalgar Wharf

Only just heard about this. This is getting really worrying!

Tim, the Wharf site states:-Security
Security cameras operate around the site and 24 hour recordings are taken. The marina is secured by a controlled gate and patrolling security in the evenings.

What went wrong when they have all this on offer on their web pages

The site (being former MOD) is surrounded by a fairly chunky fence. The only way in and out in through the main gate (which you have to have a fob to open) which has CCTV and is manned 24 hours a day by security.

Red faces all round in the security office I would imagine. Worrying that these bastards have such audacity to try and get into such a seemingly well protected site.

Surely all that's only as good as a response time - you can sit and watch as many CCTV tapes as you like of balaclava'd people nicking stuff - if it doesn't trigger a response to catch them in the act, that must be where it gets tricky?

I've seen security on some of the sites I've worked on, one was on the news whilst I was working there about it been a definite target for terrorists.... I can see why to, the security guards were either drunk or asleep.

It wouldn't suprise me if some one had bunged him a back hander to turn a blind eye.
