Incidents emphasise caravan security requirements

The importance of robust caravan security has been highlighted following two recent incidents involving fire and theft.

Late autumn, with its cold and wet weather, typically prompts many people to store their caravans away for the winter. Sadly, this is also the season that can encourage a handful of opportunists to cause damage to other people's property.

Unsurprisingly, the first incident occurred on Hallowe'en. Fire crews in Essex were called out to a blaze in Chadwell St Mary and arrived to find a caravan had been set alight. It took the fire-fighters 20 minutes to control the flames. The fire is being treated as an 'act of anti-social behaviour', according to caravantimes.co.uk.

Meanwhile in Derbyshire, thieves broke into five caravans that were being stored until the spring. The offenders targeted the Shardlow Marina Caravan Park between 22 - 24 October, derbytelegraph.co.uk writes and local police are appealing for information.

Fitting a TRACKER caravan monitor, which includes a motion sensor could have resulted in the alarm being raised at an earlier stage. As such, caravan owners may want to review their own security arrangements for the winter.
