Abandoned in London

Saw this whilst sat outside a pub near Kings Cross station. It's obviously been there a while judging by the amount of leaves underneath.

Seemed solid enough. Probably taken off the road due to it being in the LEZ.

SORNed and no MOT and parked on a public highway. Highly illegal and very likely to be impounded I would have thought.

Given that it is HIGHLY illegal and not just illegal I hope you did your good deed for the day and reported it to the appropriate authorities so they can come down hard with the full force of the law upon the villain owner . I'm sure it ranks alongside the other HIGHLY illegal activities that will be going on in the streets of London . Laughing Laughing

The real villains are the ones running the city of London Wink 2006 DEFENDER 90 TD5 CSW XS

Doesn't look like the handbrake works though, seems to be held in position by a plank of wood. Maybe that's the 'security system' you talk of, some of us Londoners aren't the brightest sparks!! Whistle Monsieur Le Grenadier

I've not been everywhere, but it's on my list.....

Doesn't look like the owner is bothering his/ her arse much with it anyway ? ( They're maybe in hospital or deid ?)

Looks like it could be a decent project for somebody and would be nice to read about how it was rescued from the streets of London and restored to full glory ..

Might be worth some local member from here making an inquiry and you maybe get it for a good price before some super hero do-gooder or nazi traffic warden reports it and gets it sent to the crusher ........Now that would be a crime . 2006 DEFENDER 90 TD5 CSW XS

Maybe it has been nicked and dumped and the SORN/MOT is legit and someone, somewhere has lost their pride and joy/doer-upper?

Wonder how you could find the owner without bubbling them to the highways agency and getting it towed. Could be a student with no cash? Sooo many questions, I'd get Vera on to it... Thumbs Up

Following on, I'm not on FB but perhaps someone on Def2 who is could send a query to Landy Watch, just in case it has been nicked and dumped? Monsieur Le Grenadier
