GARRY Monk’s fiancee has tweeted that their car was broken into last night.

It comes just three months after the Swansea City manager's house was broken into.

Hi fiancee Lexy Blackwell tweeted: “So p****d off - the car's been broken into last night, 2 months after we get burgled.

During the burglary in November last year the raiders made off with a haul of jewellery, watches and computers — and even the player’s kitbag, from Monk’s home in Gower Road, Killay.

The incident happened while he was having knee surgery and Monk only found out once he had come round from the anaesthetic.

The club condemned the burglars at the time, saying of Monk: “He has given everything to the club, the local community and the supporters for nearly a decade and doesn’t deserve this.

Monk subsequently offered a reward for anyone with information leading to conviction.

Last month Donna Williams, 33, from Brokesby Road in Bonymaen, appeared before Swansea magistrates who heard she had bought a £3,500 watch stolen from Monk’s home, for just £20.

Donna Williams had bartered about how much she was willing to pay because she thought the £30 asked for it was too much to pay for what she believed was a counterfeit watch, the court heard.

Williams admitted a single charge of handling stolen goods, namely a woman’s white Chanel watch. She was given a 12-month community order and told to complete 120 hours of unpaid work.

    What do you expect? The local council fill the towns with social housing and problem cases. Then they install a host of gambling shops on every corner. Then they install a host of second hand pawn shops which deal in stolen items. The local authority have created this cycle, they have allowed scum to live among us and provided them with the means to live as they do, and the beauty is when they get caught, next to nothing happens to them. The result, a society you really would not want to be a part of. Add in the immigration factor and you really don't know who is responsible for what they days. Of course, the idiots that rule us have no idea how to create a functional society, its in their interest that problems arise to keep themselves in employ.

    Sorry to hear about your car unfortunately there are so much scum about that have no respect for people, animals or property. I really hope police will find the filthy scum, probably sold to buy drugs etc, just hope there is somebody who will recognise your stuff & inform police but don't hold your breath
