Witham: I'm being victimised by vandals, says letting agent
4:00pm Friday 22nd March 2013 in News
An angry letting agent fears she is being targeted after vandals attacked her business for the second time in a year and a half.
Rebecca Popham, 32, arrived at work at Lettings Solutions in Guithavon Street, Witham, on Saturday morning to discover that the firm’s phone line and internet connection were down.
It was not initially known what the cause of the fault was, but when engineers arrived on Monday they confirmed that the line had been deliberately cut.
It is not the first time the business has been affected by vandalism.
In August 2011, a brick was thrown through a window, causing £600 damage, and in 2010 Miss Popham was forced to install CCTV after yobs continually smashed up the former Crown pub next door, which was derelict at the time.
