Channel tunnel

Over the past weeks we have seen many problems in Kent at the channel tunnel and getting to the ferry ports. The cross channel ferries running from Hampshire and airlines have reported a marked increase in passengers as a result.

If you are going abroad, here are a few suggestions to help you.

Airports are always full of people and some airports abroad are far more chaotic than those in the UK. Sadly, there are some people who go to airports with no intention of flying Ė they simply want to mingle amongst the tourists and see what ill gotten gains they can get.

Keep your valuables safe. A passport can be worth a huge amount of money on the black market. Having your passport taken either at home or abroad will certainly not help you enjoy a smooth trip to wherever you are travelling.

It is worth sharing the cash and credit cards amongst your party. If one of you should have the misfortune to lose a wallet or purse, at least you will still have some cash and cards between you to continue on your holiday without too much inconvenience.

With luggage labels on your cases and bags, donít fill in your home address on the return part of the label until you are ready to begin your journey home. Someone in an airport could easily make a note of the address, and not unreasonably assume that your house is going to be empty for at least the next week or so.

When first arriving in a foreign country, we Brits have a great gift for standing out from the crowd. We are usually pasty white, and still dressed in thermal gear from the weather at home! You would stand out a mile to any would-be thieves, especially in the confusion of a busy disorganised airport where you have bags to collect, children to supervise, and are now starting to regret wearing so many layers of clothing!

When you get to your accommodation, if you have a safe in your room please do remember to use it, even if there is a small charge by the hotel. Most are big enough to put in your camera, phones, jewellery, cash and passports Ė any of which could really spoil your holiday if they were lost.

You might want to look your best on holiday, but donít take all your crown jewels if you donít need to. You would be devastated if you lost that ring or necklace which is a family heirloom, and unless you particularly need your big expensive camera with bags full of lenses and equipment, leave it safely at home.

Most importantly, enjoy your holiday and remember to send me a postcard!

Please call Crimestoppers if you have and information about any crime, or log on to Your call is free, no one will know you called and you may earn a cash reward. If you are on Twitter, please follow me @HantsCrimestopp for regular updates. PC Simon Wright Force Crimestoppers Co-ordinator
