Dangerous hit and run driver (Garden wall damage)


Recommended Posts

Garden wall damage by dangerous HIT and RUN driver. On Friday 16th at approx. 2.30 pm a corner of our Belleneden Rd front garden wall was knocked down by a grey couple.

A neigbour saw the tail end of the incident and reports that there were to people in the front of the car, one of whom was looking very distraught.Unfortunately the neighbour was unable to get the Registration no.


The grey car involved has to have been seriously damaged as the end pier was strenthened with metal


If you have very recently noticed a badly damaged grey coupe parked/abandoned could you please let me know, together with it@ Reg. No,


This was an act of very dangerous driving - someone cd have been badly hurt - the driver needs to be found

I have a tremor and find it impossible to put location of incident, however it happened Lidl's end of Bellenden Rd. The car cd be anywhere.


If you are fairly local did your CTV pick anything up of the getaway?


I wd be grateful if you wd circulate ..Thank you.

Agreed, but do it soon as they may not keep the recording very long.


Good luck from me too!

Wasn't far from two drivers racing each other yesterday on Norwood Road, mid evening. Never seen anything like it in London, well over 70mph and cms apart from each other and a parked van that I instinctively hid behind with my pushbike. But not practicing what I preach I have not yet reported it as it happened so fast I got no make, model of number plates. Racing on the public road is an offence.

Southwark Council has a CCTV manager. Try the main switchboard

Ah - you have seen the damage.

The speed bump has only just been er elongated... coupe must still have been going very fast.

Yep, Pier /gate post with tiling on it has steel re-inforcing so car must have been badly damaged and going far too fast. A Trevor on here kindly google mapped and found CCT cameras, have tried the council as one of thiers must have picked up it up - automated reply said to forward it to XXXX.. Police not being very helpful. I can't see how car can have got out of local area with out being caught by a camera. Have given up now, and handed whole thing over to insurance co. much as I woul like the driver to be punished for driving so dangerously

    • Brockwell Park is still fenced off and looks like it will be for some time. The council have put signs up saying that Brockwell Live are responsible for restoring the park (got to love it when council's point the fingers at others to aportion blame!) and that the fences will stay up "until further notice". Looking through the fence gaps I suspect the Brockwell Wall will be up for some time as huge swathes of the park are compacted mud. The Brixton side of the park was very crowded due to the Herne Hill side being unusable.
    • And put an elasticated collar with bell on your cat so that needless deaths and maimings of small birds/mammals be avoided. 
    • Does anyone know what's happening with The Grove Tavern on the corner of Lordship lane and the A205? There is a new fence around the building. 🤷‍♂️
    • You did say that your neighbour was being cagey and I'm wondering if , for instance , he's doing a partial chimney breast removal rather than the whole thing and that he thinks this doesn't need a party wall agreement.
