    My brother has got this silver Audi A4 N reg 1.8, he is only 21 thats why he has got lexus style lights on his car lmao! Anyway back to the point, he took my daughter out to the park for me today, while I went to price a job up. Just as he was leaving the park entrance there were a gang of youths standing by the green barrier gate, where you can see in the picture where my black Audi is! They kicked it as he was driving past and it hit the car by the back light, he reversed back thinking that they had thrown something at the car, and doing this he ripped the car open, my reason for this post is to find out if the council would be responsible for this as the barrier gate was not secured whilst open?

    What do you lot think?

    Yeah the problem was the 3 youths were asian type my brother couldnt tell the difference if you lined all 3 of them up!Which 1 of them did it Not being racist or anything!
    He said as soon as they did it they were off like greyhounds down to the back of the park through the woods! I told him he should have used the car as a 4x4 and chased them then run them over.The thing is I think if he goes through the insurance they will call it a right off! He is ringing around for some quotes to get it done but he hasnt told me how much yet!

    That is some serious damage there. I don't think there's much the council will do I'm afraid.

    Are there a lot of Asians in South Wales?

    ouch, little feckers, let me tell you guys a little story, i work in a school, one morning about 2 months ago one of the windy days in feb, i was driving into the school car park, when the gate swang shut, hitting the car putting a deep vertical grooves onto the bumper and cracking the headlight... i let the site services guy know and the guy who deals with all the insurance clams in the school, he contacted the council and they paid out as the gate was not properly secured, and could have hit anything or anyone!

    they paid out £695 woooraaaa.which covered a new sport bumper front end full spray and all the bits colour coded and the same time.

    you should let your insurance know, take pics of the gate as it is and contact the council. they should be held liable as the gate in a strong gale could swing on its own, or phone the ombudsman,

    If your brother has legal protection in with his insurance its worth having a word with them, they may go after the council as its ridiculous what you can claim for now so could be worth a go if you aren't paying any legal costs.

    I do think I'd be a bit descrete though and kick a ball about with a few mates in the park keeping an eye on the gate. I'm sure they'll do it again at some point and then.....

    By rights the council should have secured the gate, try telling the council it swung closed by itself!

    And if it were me I would have been out of my car and climbing aboard one of those little bastards like a flash as i'm sure most of you would be!

    Yes Exactly what I was going to say... Tell your insurance to get onto the council and say because it wasnt secured it swung out and caught your rear quarter. There is No way they can prove that it was the Mutha F'kas that kicked the Gate. Tell him to keep on at them, Threaten them with further action if someone dont cough up as its not your fault it suddenly swung open and damaged your Ride...Why should it be you that coughs up tell them!!

    Seriously, they'll pay out in the end. Just gotta keep on the case.
    They'll try it on of course saying you have no proof that it just swung open and all that ******** because they simply dont wanna pay but your the one thats making the complaint and going for the claim so its them that has to prove you wrong really.

    Personlly I think it would be written off through insurance so a dodgy back street garage is the answer. AND tell him to get rid of them Lights Whitey 21yrs old or not:no::) He cant do that to an audi's arse.

    Asian type, could not tell the difference, not being a racist - what a load of ****!

    Agree they are scum but what's their race got to do with it, it's not relevant they need beat up for what they did not for what race they are.

    As your brother thought they had thrown something at his car, it sounds like he didn't actually see them kick or push the gate, so he doesn't need to blame them. He can tell the insurance that the gate hit his car, and mention that there were youths near the gate, but he didn't actually see them do anything to the gate. The gate should be secured and it's the councils responsibility, but getting an insurance company to fight your corner isn't always easy. It's easier for them to pay the claim (and then hike your premiums) than to get into a drawn out battle with the third party.

    Where I come from the schools , the doctors, the village, everything there is no ethnic people! If I seen 3 asian type youths at a quick glance and then the coppers asked me to a line out with 10 asian youths I could not tell the difference. It is like putting 10 trout in a pond and telling me which 1 did I catch a day ago! As for beating them up I would have pulled their limbs off not just beat them up, my daughter was in that car, so stop trying to call me racist and picking an argument with me sunshine you dont know me from ****!

    He got quotes 1 to replace the back quarter was £900 with spray, to have it pulled out and filled was £300 with spray.
    I think he is going to go with the £300 option and then sell it to his mate. As for the gate he is getting his local mp involved to see if he can use him against the council.

    Not picking an argument with you, but what was the relevance of mentioning that the were 'asian types'?

    Are you telling me that if the three youths were white you would be able to tell the difference if you had not seen them before?

    So because you do not have exposure to 'ethnic people' it makes it difficult for you to tell the difference between them? Why did you not just say three youths you have not explained why them being asian was mentioned, as I said previously they need beat up but it was you that brought race into it, not me.

    What !!! a4sline190 are you on about. I personally agree with Whitey_1, you gonna call me raciest as well ? He mentioned they were asian because they were..... simple.

    I personally can't tell the difference from a quick glance.... but can with other races.

    Ethnic people say the same about white people. If someone referred to me as white it would be because I actually am white.

    There is obviously a problem here with people not being able to tell the difference between asian people - so what you are saying is that they all look the same because the colour of their skin - a typical very narrow minded view!

    Yes I am sure some of them would refer to white people as all looking the same too, if they did my stance would be the same - racist views on both sides are unacceptable.

    How is referring to someone that is asian as asian racist for fucks sake, its people like you who stir up something that isn't actually there.
    He intimated that he didn't see them properly.

    No he said they were asian and he could not tell the difference between them, at no point did he say he did not see them properly, get the facts right.

    He wasnt even there it was his brother who couldn't say which one did it,not the difference between them.
    I would look at it this way how would you describe them individually.I bet all had the same colour hair,eyes,skin colour and probably very similar clothes.The only difference would be height and build.
