  1. I was also attached in same car park a week later by two men on a bike. They fortunately didn’t get my car and investigations are ongoing.
    Lidl are refusing to speak to me.. Have called several times and an always being fobbed off by their customer service team. I know it wasn’t their fault but a courtesy call would have been nice. I won’t ever shop there again until they acknowledge what’s happening in their doorstep and put security in place!!!
