He says he has previously been plagued by yobs ringing his buzzer late at night and feared the same culprits are to blame.

Graham of Willesborough, Kent, said: “I went to use my scooter when I realised the brake lines had been cut.

“I leave my scooter outside my front door but the door to get into the building is always locked.
