Can anyone please identity these centipede/millipede wormy  looking creatures?

Ranging from 2 or 3 cm long up to 25 or 30 cm, they have a brown leathery banded appearance. We only see them after rain or chilly conditions.  Also how do I get rid of the blighters? They walk through ant powder and soil insecticide powder… Cheers.

 

Damaged Vehicle. Any Information…?  Whilst parked on Monday 23rd November between 12.00 and 2pm. on the road leading from the back of the Competa car park, my car was damaged, (see picture). Unfortunately the responsible person failed to leave any contact details. If anyone can provide any helpful information it would be much appreciated. e-mail address “peter dot threepins@gmail dot com”

 

Complaint re Lack of Pics  Why can’t people add a picture when they have something to sell. This would save a lot of time and trouble to someone who wants to buy the item. If I don’t see a picture then I am not interested, after all you wouldn’t buy a Monet painting worth millions if you didn’t see it, even if you could afford it. Tony
