I don’t think the fire service needed to bother putting that out it looks like there is nothing left to put out. Stolen ? Involved in something and wants to hide evidence ? Insurance fiddle?
Possibly this one?
might have been someone trying to keep warm ?
Not very funny
I’m sure that Martha will blame the heatwave.
I think that first picture is very artistic.
That car could be worth alot of money to the arty community
no she will deny it ever happened , or better still that it happens everywhere not just here ?
I expect this sort of thing does happen anywhere.
By the way, who is Martha?
A woman you’ll never be.
Talking about marva does anyone know her haven’t heard anything from her for some time is she OK! Hope she is.
Ms Rees = Marva = Martha Reeves and The Vandellas (I think).
Peter I get your logic now also looking at way posts are written. Diolch.
tracey emin would have got 3 million for that
Exactly get on on some arty site it will sell for millions
Strange that out local thug is on foot today and that his car is nowhere to be seen 🤔
Of who do you speak?
Turner would have captured that as beautifully as the photo. Burnt out cars in the uk aren’t uncommon. Unfortunately. Not just to be found in Thanet.
The things people leave on our beaches, dont they know its a pspo area.
Lovely dog in the econd photo, roaming free exploring~
I am sure one of the seasonal beach cleaners will pop it into one of their bags!
