Each of the videos gives 'An error occurred...'

I'm quite pleased... I head off shortly and, having taken normal precautions (alarm etc) don't want to give myself the jitters!

Oh how very handy, someone has posted details on YouTube of how to break into other people’s property. Very public spirited of them.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I would like to see someone suing the manufacturers for selling vans that you can break into in 10 seconds - but of course the manufacturers are careful not to make claims about the security of what they sell for very obvious reasons.

Alarms and immobilisers are obviously useful but it doesn't take a thief long to get what he wants, even with an alarm sounding.

If you think about it our Van's have plastic windows which are as secure as a chocolate fire guard. I work on the assumption that if someone wants to break in it will not take them too long but if the alarm is working they will not want to be hanging around for too long. So I tend to leave odds and ends laying around but hide valuables.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

Steel bars over the plastic windows would not look too good also think of the weight!
