In a swift and decisive action, Aaron Guard’s vigilant security personnel prevented a major theft at Network Rail’s Collyhurst Compound in Manchester on July 26th.

A team of five thieves attempting to steal lengths of copper cable were intercepted and thwarted by our guards during their routine patrol of the compound.
