(Extract.  There has recently been an increase in thefts of trailers, particularly Ifor Williams. Ifor Williams hold a database of owner details for their trailers and horse boxes and it is important to update them when you buy or are about to buy a trailer as they will be able to confirm if it is a stolen one. Please also consider photographing and recording the details of your trailers including chassis numbers and any other identifying features.  Also please see report here for Op Salmon update)
