Have your say

A MAN with plans to change the way shops and businesses operate in Fareham and Gosport has had all of his electronic equipment stolen.

Ric Reynolds, of Shop Share UK had parked his car at St Thomas’s Road in Gosport to pick up his dinner from a takeaway and returned to find the window of his silver Smart car smashed, with his laptop and camcorder stolen.

The incident on Saturday, April 13 at 8pm. A Panasonic HD burgundy and silver video camera and a black widescreen Hewlett Packard laptop were taken from the vehicle.

Mr Reynolds has now lost all of his data stored about his business and all videos he has taken.

His firm Shop Share UK aims to put small retailers or businesses together in the same shop or office unit so they can support each other.

He said: ‘When I came out the window was smashed and the laptop and camcorder was stolen.

‘It wouldn’t be so bad if one of them was gone but both have gone, all the videos on the camcorder, my laptop and files and paperwork, everything’s gone.’
