Those keen viewers of fly-on-the-wall documentary programmes about the Police (mostly the chaps, we suspect) will be very familiar with Bilking — a term often used to describe a customer 'making off without paying' for goods or services, most commonly the theft of vehicle fuel.

One of the tricks is to steal car number plates from the same model, and then pose as another vehicle — the video security systems on petrol forecourts then wrongly identify the "culprit". Such tricks also allow perpetrators to avoid congestion charges, speeding fines and so on.

Sadly, the theft of car number plates is quite common. However, there is an easy way to foil these naughty people — by means of anti-theft number plate screws (genius!!).

Come and have your number plates security fixed to your car, free of charge — on Saturday morning, 20th October 2012.
At: Tesco Broadfields, Aylesbury.
From: 10am until 2pm.

Come along and get anti theft number plate screws fitted to your car, for free, by Aylesbury Vale Youth Project. This can prevent your number plates being stolen and used in crime.
