VAN and caravan owners in Denbighshire are being made aware of the simple steps which can be taken to reduce their chances of becoming a victim of crime.

The advice comes after reports of several incidents of suspicious vehicles travelling around the Ruthin area, and people making enquiries whether vehicles and caravans are for sale.

Police say a car like the one pictured below, containing three males (one with an Irish accent), has been knocking on people's doors asking if they have caravans for sale.
