Buildings like this around Sneinton have been concerning residents

Residents have expressed concerns about their well-being after a car was broken into last night (February 1) in Sneinton.

A 2013 Toyota Yaris, was left undamaged and nothing was taken although the individual left the car in a state.

Lottie Louise, a teacher who lives on Victoria Avenue and owns the vehicle, said: “I was getting into the car to go to work when I realised it had been broken into.

“Everything in the glove compartment and footwells had been dragged out although nothing had been taken.

“There was no sign of forced entry which worried me because the vehicle was definitely locked.”

This is not the only worry residents face, as many people have taken to community Facebook groups to share stories of suspicious activity.

Lottie also said they have recently seen “antisocial behaviour up and down the road”, and there have been many things stolen off the street.

“My partner saw someone loitering outside two nights ago but as soon as he went outside to look, the person left,” she said.

“There is no reason to be down the end of our road as there is no way through.

“We once borrowed a sledgehammer from our neighbours and it was stolen after 10 minutes.

“I think it has something to do with the boarded up house at the end of the road.”

Her concerns are shared by other members of the community, who worry about people loitering and invading on property.

Another resident of Sneinton, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “It’s like a zombie land.

“When I’m at work I can’t leave the doors of my work place open for five minutes or people will just walk in.

“Since lockdown there has been less police on the streets so it’s almost been a free win for these people.

“I’ve tried contacting the police and council for 18 months but they have done nothing about it.”

They also said that their neighbours and other residents have contacted the police but nothing had been done.
