Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience. Please may you clarify, is your question with regard to the van being stolen last year or with regards to what happened when you were pulled over by police 2 weeks ago? And what reason is your employer giving for telling you to pay for the cost of the van and the tools? Is there an allegation of negligence on your part in anyway that they are claiming contributed or caused the losses?
