Thieves smash into WatchPro office overnight

Promedia Break In

WatchPro’s London office was broken into last night, with laptops and other vital computer equipment stolen.

Police have attended and are investigating this morning.

WatchPro is one of ten titles in the Promedia stable, and the office has a team of 20 people. Most are working remotely today and trying to minimise disruption to their usual workload.

“Nobody was hurt, but we are all so dependent on technology these days that this is going to slow us down a bit,” says Rob Corder, editor of WatchPro and managing director of Promedia.

“We will be back to our usual news alert feed as quickly as possibly, hopefully by tomorrow.”

  1. Sorry to hear this Rob. I know exactly how you feel. It is so bloody frustrating. Hope the distrupiton is quickly sorted and glad to hear no-one hurt. Neil

  2. It is unfortunate if the current and archived watches information resources have suddenly suffered. After all, the time spent on their search, creation and systematization is simply priceless.

  3. I did not want to be sarcastic at all. After all, the many years of maintaining such a large and popular site is not an example of consistency and order? Sorry my bad English.
