A team of UK detectives have discovered 30 caravans in Benidorm which are believed to have been stolen in a crime spree in Lancashire. The team searched the several caravan sites in the area last week, together with the Spanish police and insurance investigators. Within three days they identified 30 caravans out of 120 they inspected. The caravans are being returned to the UK while the police inquiry continues. A Lancashire Police spokesman said: “The occupiers of the caravans which we have recovered in Spain are often innocent parties in all this and it is unfortunate for them that they have bought what has turned out to be a stolen caravan.” He advised prospective caravan buyers to conduct checks before purchasing and to avoid cash transactions.
