September 16th - A Neighbourhood Watch suggestion from our ex Chief Superintendant is very topical in the light of stolen vehicles recently recovered in Lowedges. Often the first that the original owners know about their vehicle having been cloned is when they receive a speeding ticket or other summons including parking. Sometime in the past they may have had their number plates stolen, as was the case recently in the Dore area where a number of plates were taken. The owner buys a replacement set of plates and forgets about it until something happens. The rogues may use the plates for a number of illegal activities after fitting them to a similar vehicle. A quick check on car checker or a similar website will only show the type of vehicle and colour etc. but not if their plates have been stolen.
As a simple method of proving it was not your vehicle being used illegally, our member suggests putting a significant marker or sticker in your rear window that can easily be seen on any speed camera or other type of camera. You have to take a time & date stamped photo of the rear of your car to prove you have had the identifier on the vehicle for some time, and it is unlikely the rogues will notice the identifier whilst stealing your plates, and so the photo of their car will not include this sticker.
Unsurprisingly flying a 60+ year-old war plane led to issues and brought Manchester Airport to a temporary standstill. A spokesman for Manchester Airport said the landing had not had an impact on operations.
On Sunday, the Wing Commander rang to apologise to BAG. But there’s no chance of a refund because there was no fee in the first place.
