Blimey. It took a long time for someone to spot that didn't it? Either that or the gas bottles were considered too much of a hazard to get in close.

I leave mine in neutral with chocks under the wheels on our storage site, in case someone needed to drag it out of the way in an emergency. Not the perfect solution but better than nothing.

A Volkswagen swift which apparently can reach up to £40000.... what is the reporter smoking??? :):)

I'm sure insurance will have settled for most people, I feel for then at renewal time though unless they switch sites..

That sounds ok so long as the site insurers pick up the whole tab without involving your own insurance. Not a foregone conclusion I wouldn't have thought knowing how they operate !

I used to store my caravan on that site, some 10 years ago.

Glad I didn't take my van there.
