Whilst out shopping I accidentally locked my keys in the boot of my car. I called Durham Locksmiths who advised that they would be there within 30 minutes. About 20 minutes later Chris arrived and opened the boot of my car quickly and without any damage. Excellent service and have stored his number in my phone in case it ever happens again. Highly recommended.
