TWO businessmen have vowed not to give in to thieves and vandals whose repeated crimes have cost them thousands of pounds.

That is despite both admitting they were on the verge of closing their family firms.

John Hussey, co-owner of the Bradford on Avon Golf Club, and Steve Wordley, pictured, owner of 1st Call Skip Hire at Westbury, have both been targeted by criminals and vandals who have repeatedly attacked their premises.
