Grandfather becomes caravan theft victim
A semi-retired grandfather from the south-east of England has been left feeling as though he is "living in a dream" after he discovered his caravan had been stolen.
Brian Blanks, 62, of Lawlinge Road, Latchingdon, found out his Coachman Pastiche, which is worth around £8,000, had disappeared on Monday (March 4th) at about 10:00 GMT.
The grandfather-of-three had stored hundreds of pounds worth of belongings in the caravan, including camping equipment, a barbecue, a satellite dish, a Sky TV box, a DVD player and children’s toys, reports the Essex County Standard.
Mr Blanks explained he used to take his family on weekends away during the summer in the vehicle. He may need to make a claim on his caravan insurance following the theft.
West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service recently stated that they believe a caravan fire at Ratham Lane in West Ashling was started deliberately.
Nobody was hurt in the incident and no people were in the caravan at the time of the incident, reported the Chichester Observer.
