the electric plugs were hanging off ,the gas fire(log incased fire)doors ripped off and pulled away from bearings all mirrors smashed and glass doors even wooden panels on door smashed , interesting none of their property was damaged,they told the police it was gate crashers that did the damage so the police havent any one to charge, ,toilet leaking so we have to turn the water off .outside the fencing was broken down leaving the property exposed so today we have

taped the whole area off for safety
