Seething BBC presenter Nick Knowles has lashed out at thieves who broke into his DIY SOS team’s vans as they were carrying out a life-changing renovation.
An estimated £4,000 worth of tools were stolen in West Bromwich as the team worked on the home of a family who lost their mother to cancer.
Thieves used drills to get into the vans to steal the tools in a crime which a BBC spokesman said ‘took between 10 and 20 seconds’.
Knowles vented on Twitter about the incident, which happened at around 11am on Monday.
He said: ‘Really disappointed, had two volunteer builders’ vans broken into on West Brom SOS – damage to Peugeot rear van door – can local dealer mend?’
