Most of us grew up learning that if we wanted some directions or needed help we should go and ask a policeman.  Times however have moved on and we now tend to find ourselves looking for someone carrying a clipboard or wearing a high-vis jacket.  It’s incredible the level of confidence a high-vis can instil in your average member of the public.

I find it strange just how quiet the security industry is on the subject of Brexit.  Whether you voted to leave or remain, whether you believe in the PM’s plan or think she is wasting valuable time, Brexit is undoubtably the topic of the moment and will remain so for some time to come.  Yet collectively the security industry remains relatively mute on its potential impact – which could be significant.

Fly-tipping is also on the rise, with vacant sites being prime targets. The number of incidents has increased for the third year in a row: councils across England and Wales reported 936,090 cases in 2015–16, up 4% on the previous year.
