Has anyone else noticed the burnt out mopeds on Cibber road and Como road?

Yes. The Como Road one went up last night at about 2am.

It's a bit weird though - only very recently (in the past few weeks) have about 6 or 7 mopeds started parking there, normally in clusters chained together. It's lucky that only one parked on it's own went up and not one parked with the others.

Unfortunately the one that did burn was right under the only tree at that end of the road, and the tree looks blackened and to have really suffered in its canopy.

As he should. Two spontaneous bike fires in close proximity seemed unlikely. Does the SNT have any info I wonder?

The Como Road incident: some men were spotted trying to steal a scooter next to the tree and the police arrived about 1am Monday morning. That scooter was moved to the other side of the road where the rest of them were parked. I don't know what time the police left but when I woke up later that morning there was the burnt out scooter under the tree. I don't know if it was the original one or whether another had been subsequently parked there.

mOOky: did you see the fire?

The scooters (some if not all) belong to men who share a house in Como Road and are used for takeaway deliveries.

Cibber Road: Do we know if that was attempted theft too?

Just wondering about the timings. I saw the police at 1am and they seemed to be there for ages and I went back to bed before they left. If the bike was torched or self-combusted about 2am that would have been about 30-40 minutes after the police left? Not nice thinking arsonists are roaming around our local streets at night.
