The Bad news is I have found the exact same Screw as the one removed in one of the Construction Teaching Workshops.  So I am afraid to say my 3 punctures this year seem to be a little intentional. 

 

Faced with having to check tyres every night before I leave I have located another place to park off site at another one of our buildings - and I will walk the last mile - but I am afraid everything points to the 3 punctures this year being deliberate.

That's not good Les but at least it sounds like you have found the source of the problem. I have had similar problems with 'youth' at a building workshop next to the factory where they have been throwing bricks and have damaged a portacabin!

If that's what is happening then that's very sad Les :(

 

Maybe it's time to ask Santa for a dash cam that records even when you aren't in the car?

Those look like either TurboGold screws available from screwfix or the Reisser cutter screw available from Appleby woodturnings.

 

Both are readily available to anyone ... although mainly purchased by pro builders who now do work for various council departments, I have seen a few of these screws lying around the garages in my area, luckily not yet collected one ! all I have collected in one of my tyres was a Stanley knife blade !!! now that is suspicious.

 

The screw puncture will be repaired without any problems.

Sad news Les a fact of life that when you have something nice someone will always want to see this as a target. Have you considered drastic measures like letting the car get dirty to get less attention. !!!!!

We have a fairly large training faciltiy for Construction, it just happened I walked over to one of the buildings today for another job and sure enough I met its twin in a big box. 

 

Anyway, I have a nice new place which will be out of sight, well lit and has its own CCTV Camera.  It will be a walk, but I would prefer that knowing the car is safe.

Sounds about right as they are purchased in big boxes of 100+ not right though that they are finding their way all the way from over to under you tyres !!!

Car is in its new home today.  3 CCTV camera's on it.  One on the Passenger Side - one of the rear and one over the top watching the entire car.  If anyone goes near it now it will be on CCTV

 

This is the overhead image.  Should see most things.

and you nearly parked it in the space ;-)

sorry I didn't comment before Les, I just couldn't find the right words (well, not ones that were publishable)

Pleased you've found a solution

That's a very well protected car Les.  Great parking spot!

Yes, it's good to see it's safe.  Long may it stay that way now.  And hopefully the past was just unfortunate coincidences.
