Metal thieves 'destroy' Derbyshire man's burger van business
A man who set up a burger van after being made redundant three years ago has said thieves have put him out of business.
Steve Dawson, 52, operated his van from a lay-by in Etwall, Derbyshire.
Mr Dawson said thieves caused £15,000 worth of damage after the van's stainless steel work surfaces and doors were stripped.
He said: "They've left nothing worth bothering with now, it's completely finished me as a business."
Mr Dawson was an engineer before he was made redundant in 2008.
