Horse box sense

WITH trailer, horse-box and caravan theft running into millions of pounds each year, there is clearly an incentive for owners to try to protect their investments.

Latest attempt at reducing the success rate of thieves comes from the Automobile Association which, in conjunction with the police, is offering a vehicle marking service.

Approved by the Home Office, the system involves roof-top marking with a postcode. Cost to AA members is £35, and to non-members £45.
