A man who claims he had £15,000 of damage done to his home after a burglary has staged a one man protest against a building society he says has let him down.
The home of Tommy Georgiou, 37, in Kimms Belt, Thetford, was burgled on May 27 this year.
Five months later, he says he is still waiting on Nationwide to pay up the insurance money he claims is due to him.
The burglary saw thieves break through a rear door and window to enter the property, taking a Sony Playstation, PSP, Xbox, cash, digital camera and keys.
Mr Georgiou was hurt in the incident when he went through a glass window, having tripped over a hazard left by the burglars. He was knocked unconscious and spent a night in hospital.

'I've got no locks on my back doors because of the damage that was done and I don't feel safe leaving the house. I've had to screw the doors shut.
'I just wanted it sorting because it's having a big effect on my life,' he said.
Mr Georgiou said a fraud investigator had been to his house, but that Nationwide had only recently sought a police report into the incident.
Nationwide were unable to comment on Mr Georgiou's case before the EDP went to print.
