Burglars hit homes of caravan owners


BURGLARS are targeting caravan owners’ homes when they go away for the weekend.

Police believe thieves are scouring the East Riding searching for people cleaning and packing caravans on their driveways.

Since January, 11 houses have been burgled after the occupants went away in their caravans.

Detective Inspector Joanne Roe, from the serious acquisitive crime team, said: “I have a strong suspicion homes have been specifically targeted to be burgled after the offender has toured around the East Riding looking for caravan owners.

“I believe they are making note of any that look like they are getting ready to go away.

“The majority of the burglaries have happened across a weekend, which is what led me to my theory. I believe homes with caravans parked outside their addresses are being watched in the days prior to them going on a trip.”

Porthcawl caravan park to reopen after lying ‘derelict for more than a decade’


A famous Porthcawl caravan site will welcome visitors for the first time in more than a decade next week.

Sandy Bay Touring Site will reopen for business on Monday on land close to the Hi Tide Inn.

The former site – a mainstay of the seaside town’s tourism industry – was controversially closed by the council in 2000, in part to free up the prime seafront site for Porthcawl’s regeneration scheme.

But the seafront dune expanse remained unused for 12 years, with Hi Tide Inn director Geoff Dower branding it “derelict for a decade”.

Calls to reopen the site have persisted for more than a decade, with residents and campaigners arguing the lack of overnight stopover facilities for camper vans has led to a clogging up of the seafront with overnight parkers.
