“Crime Beat Security”, Islington: bell-end

Crime Beat Security

“Crime Beat Security” burglar alarm, Islington • I’ve already featured the tortuous CBS bell here, but this is a more recent version with a curvier bell-end, and a garland of EU stars. Still a winner – ding dong! • Spotted: Cumming Street, Islington, London, N1, England, 2006 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Islington South and Finsbury

  1. Hi. This company is no more. The company was owned was Chris Purcell who is my bussiness partners, Keith Avey brfother in Law. Chris sold Crime Beat a few years ago. Some of you ex Lander guys may rmembr Chris fropm Lander and Crusader days. I think Chris worked from the Pechham branch all those years ago. Chris sold Crime Beat to a small East London based fiorm who’s name escapes me.

    • In 1982 Landers brought Rentokil Security which consisted of the old Crusader and D & D companies, Chris became Service Manager for my branch at Wimbledon and Peckham branch. Please send him my regards.
