It really is true then .............
I wonder what breathing apparatus the thieves wear?
I thought my dry mouth and the nasty taste was the copious amounts of red wine I drank, but maybe it turns out I was gassed.
What vent was that then?????
Nothing to do with celebrating a birthday then.....
no mention of the rolex, just a bog standard watch from under his pillow
I thought I’d had a good night yesterday. I was gassed, thrown onto the road and my Fiat stolen.
Woke up with a bump and sore head. Disappointed to find that I’d only fallen out of bed (and still own a Fiat).
One useful nugget in the story is it happened at a "caravan and truck stop". If this means an aire de service folk have long been advised to avoid parking up overnight at such places unless they have a good alarm set. No gas is required.
has anyone just normaly been robbed without gas?
Good job the Grandfather had a spare watch at home to pose for a photo with. I'm sure the first place I would think of looking for any valuables is under the pillow of a sleeping person.
Birthday money all gone and nothing to show for it. How can we explain that away..I know GASSED!!!
i have stayed at lood of airs de service par in a well lit place i have never had a problem
Damn. Forgot to buy popcorn in Sainsburys yesterday.
Of course it is, as the article says,
"That also echoed similar previous reports of attacks against wealthy individuals and celebrities.
Former Arsenal footballer Patrick Vieira said he and his family were knocked out by gas during a 2006 raid on their home in Cannes. And in 2002, British television stars Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine said they were gassed while attending the Cannes Film Festival."
None of these people would ever seek publicity by making spurious claims they had been gassed, or claims of any sort just to be in the public eye. Neither would they pose for photographs or allow any kid of intrusion in to their very private lives. Why do you think Victoria Beckham and similar personalities, stars, great actors and those who we lesser mortals aspire to emulate almost always wear sunglasses (and in the case of ladies bloody great big ones). Its because they value their privacy so much they don't want anyone to recognise them.
These people could maybe go about incognito if they behaved in a less ostentatious manner and went to Lidl or Tesco or Mcdonalds like the rest of us, you know, little makeup, ordinary trainers, ordinary clothes but just be be sure there is no chance of being recognised but unfortunately for them they feel they have to protect their privacy by hiding themselves inside a ring or large security people after getting out of huge off road and sometimes on road status symbol vehicles while wearing the said sun specs and the very latest designer clothes and ignoring the press photographers who have usually and inexplicably been previously tipped off by an anonymous phone call to the press association or local papers by someone in the know.
It must be hell for them.
Getting to use this a bit more often lately......
This is what they use, how many times do I have to tell you......... don’t park next to it.....
not another one
as brenda from bristol would say
Oh I absolutely believe that the properties mentioned were filled with gas without killing the occupants or explosions
Do you only get paid out by the insurance if you were gassed rather than pi$$ed ?
Just asking ...
No iPad stolen
This is Gloucestershire-online, used to be our local paper, and they are renowned for getting things wrong and sensationalising even minor incidents. Also their spelling and punctuation are crap !!!
