Stephen Hoggan - we salute you

Yesterday this blog reported the remarkable story of a car stolen in Lutton Place, pursued by the owner - who then battled to thwart the thieves as he clung to the moving vehicle. Further details are contained in the police press release requesting witnesses and in this article and this BBC report.

Some will doubless ask whether his efforts might not have led to his serious injury. But on the evidence we have you cannot but admire and congratulate Stephen for his bold, persistent and courageous attempts to thwart these common thieves whose reckless, life threatening actions need to be very severely dealt with.
