Fenland caravan owners urged to check security after spate of thefts

CARAVAN owners are being urged to check their security following a spate of thefts - including one from outside a Fenland home.

A caravan was stolen at some point between April 2-5 from a property in Kirkgate Road, Tydd St Giles, near Wisbech.

Since the beginning of the month, seven caravans have been stolen from the Fenland and Huntingdon areas and officers are urging owners to take all precautions they can.

Crime reduction officer Julie Hanrahan said: “With the nicer spring weather we often get an increase in caravan crime and I would urge owners to keep theirs as secure as possible.

“I would also advise them to ensure they are marked with a post code or index number on the roof and to put property marking stickers on the inside of windows.

“Using wheel locks is advisable and another tip is to ensure the towing hitch is pointed away from the road when the caravan is left unattended.”
