Copied from original post on East Dulwich Forum, as is the fishmonger from outside WH Smiths, Forest Hill

"Hello everybody, I am posting on EDF as this crime should have a wider audience.

Yesterday around 10.30am Grant's van was stolen.

White van, with all the stock and all his belongings. Please keep an eye out!!

The lovely fishmongers who comes up from Hastings every Thursday has had his van robbed as he was delivering to our elderly neighbour. He normally trades parked outside WHSmiths by Forest Hill station, his fish is super fresh (being the catch of the previous day)

Vehicle 1

Colour: White , Make: Ford transit custom, Model: Custom / Fishmongers van, Year: 2017, Type: Van, Reg. No.: YS17 MZE, Other: Westwood park

UPDATE: Some time later someone spotted the van parked in Sydenham, they contacted police but by the time the force arrived (2.5 hours later) the van had gone. The thieves had come back to swapped number plates and drove off. Chance of finding it is now zero. Insurance will cover part of his losses but only a marginal fraction. He will be able to borrow one of his relatives vans to use next week. So next Thursday he should be parked in his usual spot with a different van. Please support him as much as you can. This was a terrible blow for a small business like his, he has lost a fortune and all the tools for his job. His fish is always super fresh. I regularly get sushi standard tuna and salmon from him, live crab and dressed crab when available. He literally brings over fish that was came off the boats the previous day and is very reasonably priced. His local cod is divine, could stay in the fridge without stinking for 4 days! Please if you like fish try him and support the trade of a true self made hard working.
