NFU report reveals a decrease in fuel theft

As we reported earlier this month via our Twitter page, the NFU released the latest report on rural crime, revealing that fuel theft is no longer one of the top five most commonly stolen items in the UK’s rural areas.

Each year NFU Mutual (National Farmers Union) investigates its claims data to measure the nature of crimes committed within rural communities. This year’s report showed that in 2015 the rate of heating oil and diesel thefts had decreased and therefore didn’t appear in the top five most commonly stolen items in rural areas, compared to in 2014 when it ranked third.

Here at Centre Tank Services we are delighted with this news, as we continue to promote fuel and fuel tank security via the Fuel Security Monitor and Oil Tank Pack, with the aim to contribute to the prevention of fuel theft.
