I have complained to the police who have apparently liaised with the Procurator Fiscal and they say no criminal act has occured.
Thanks for that. I don't really have the time or inclinantion to chase someone through the courts for damages (,£1,000), especially as an alternative method of dealing with on the face of it to me seems like criminal damage. I would rather the police deal with it and force the guy to pay the cost of restitution. Is that feasible?
Understood. We don't actually want him prosecuted, but what alternatives to prosecution are there for the police/PF (apart from just telling us to deal with it in the civil courts)?
OK thanks Alex. That's all I need.
ok will do
