4th night of violence in Mirail

France 3/Scoop, Apr 20

After the fourth night of violence in Mirail, the damage is being evaluated.

In total, 60 cars have been set alight in the Mirail district of Toulouse during the four nights of “urban violence”.

Not only private cars, professional vehicles but also cars for sale such as in Bernard Boyer’s garage, where he lost 12 vehicles, have all been destroyed.

Bernard’s losses amount to €130,000 which will only be partly reimbursed by insurance.

For individuals whose cars have been burned, everything will depend on their insurance contracts.

The municipality of Toulouse, for its part, is struggling to quantify the damage. Under each burned vehicle, the road has been destroyed. Nearly 200 m2 of asphalt will have to be re-surfaced according to Franck Biasotto, district mayor of Grand Mirail.

About twenty containers were also destroyed.

According to the district mayor, “we must not leave a mark, we must intervene immediately so that visible traces of the violence are destroyed”.
