  1. Gosh your poor son! Hope he makes a speedy recovery. Good advice about giving the robbers what they want - that's what my parents always told me and what I will tell my son x

    I am sad that your chld has been a victim.
    I might add that maybe he shouldn't be alone at night cashing up and should do it say ina morning.leaving the money in a safe till them. Around here the pubs dont cash up at night .or if they do there is nearly always another around.If they do go to cash points then they do so in pairs and in the day time....one local pub, that used to pay in cash takings at my wife's old place of work came in with escorts.........but they where cashing some £5000- 20000 a nigt from a big pub.
    Maybe he even needs for a security firm to collect the cash.
    Added security is also something to be considered...lots of local pubs are being hit and robbed.especially in villages and out of way places.Doesn't take much for an oportunist thief to strike..they really dont care.The assumption being that insurance will cover it......which it doesnt in many cases and might easiy destroy a liveyhood
    Once again im really sorry that your son had to suffer such truama.

    That's awful. Best wishes to you all and hope he puts this behind him successfully - with security lessons learned though.
