Not funny this. I've shifted booze for years on an industrial scale & had lots and lots of problems becuae of it.

I've suffered vehicle break in's, diversion fraud, vehicles followed and drivers attacked, trailers stolen, theft by drivers, fraud by customers, fraud by consignees, the lot.

However, the worst of the lot was a lorry parked overnight was broken into whilst the driver was asleep in the cab & woken, he called the police. They turned up, found a few cases a few feet away & asked the driver if they could help themselves.

He said: "Well, that would be stealing, wouldn't it?"

Coppers left empty handed. That one really pissed me off.

The Police should seek out vehicles converted to run on spiritous liquor,they's hardly going to drink good fuel.
