“There have been several thefts round St Peter’s Way and Birmingham Road recently,” said Gavin, who works as a security guard at music festivals.

“My mate had a few bikes stolen about two and a half weeks ago.

“And they tried breaking into the neighbour’s garage and dented the back of his Renault.”

Last week, a van fire spread to the roofs of four homes in the area and a man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of arson.

Although the BBQ was only worth £80, thefts and vandalism in St Peter’s Way is too common an occurrence for Gavin.

He lives with his elderly father and disabled sister, and installed the CCTV system two years ago after a spate of attacks on his dad’s car.

“We had to replace three or four car windshields,” he said.

The family were advised by the police to install the cameras, but although Gavin has sent them the videos, including one where you can see the thief’s face, he hasn’t heard anything back yet.
