    .Struggling for words..praying on flood victims

    Can’t help with the bikes, but the word you’re looking for is probably “preying”

    I think I’ve spent too long on here and need to stop.

    We were moving bikes around outside Blazing and got them in as soon as we could for fear of this.

    Utterly terrible.

    Co-Op in Hebden was broken into last night too.

    Dear god! There really are no depths to which some people won’t sink. Since the floods here the other day, all I’ve seen is an outpouring of people being as helpful as possible. Its been brilliant to see everyone mucking in.

    I suppose that in amongst all that positivity and community spirit you’re bound to get the odd low-life who sees it an an opportunity. I’ve shared the post. Hope you get them back guys. I suspect that either way, the karma fairy will catch up with the people prepared to pull a stunt like that!

    Oh… and for Edlong…

    Time and a place dude. This isn’t really either

    It amazes me how many people have absolutely no moral compass. I know it’s a minority, but a depressingly large one.

    Hope these bikes get recovered and the scrotes suffer in some way.

    Scum. Indication of how close to the edge our society is. What’s the saying, we are two days without food from anarchy ?

    We’re really not Jammers. Don’t be such a drama queen.

    The reaction to the floods up here have been so overwhelmingly positive that’s its bought communities together, and restored a lot of people’s (me included) faith in human nature.

    There’s always a few wrong ‘uns. But that’s all they are.

    So do spare us the whole Daily Mail ‘we’re all going to gel in a hand basket’ nonsense please mate?

    Binners know exactly what you me mean My lad and granddaughter live opposite cycle factory and are flooded out with about 3ft of water, the level of help from everyone is overwhelming, no idea where they come from but am I glad they’re here.
    GregMay I was down Hebden earlier today it was utter devastation it wasn’t a flood more a tsunami.
    To put further grief on people at a time of lowest ebb is unforgivible
    Thanks to everyone who has shared topic this around

    How some people see tragedy as opportunity is beyond me.
    Unfortunately there will always be scumbags like this.
    Hope you get all the bikes back, and whoever nicked them gets their just desserts.

    Apparently Organic House and Molly & Ginger were broken into as well.

    Molly and gingers was Chinese whispers. Unfortunately the owner drove several miles to see if they had been broken into unnecessarily as she hadn’t.

    Nice to hear that folk are joining in and helping each other out but just as they are some have to live up to their reputations of being s#$%bags.

    That’s good with M&G – last thing we need are more people being idiots.
