    Daylight robbery floors building contractor - Times Online, Auckland, New Zealand
    The large fixed scaffold - dimensionally 7m high, by 3m long and 2.4 wide – would take an experienced scaffolder 30 minutes to dismantle, says Mr Williams.

    He believes the thieves backed up a vehicle to a site parameter fence and lifted the scaffold components over the wire.

    “It’s huge” Mr Williams told the Times on Friday. “It would have taken a bit of man power to get it out. I’m gutted it’s gone.”
