Holiday Travel - Top tips to avoid becoming a victim of travel fraud:
Stay safe online: Check the web address is legitimate and has not been altered by slight changes to a domain name – such as going from .co.uk to .org
Do your research: Don't just rely on one review – do a thorough online search to check the company's credentials. If a company is defrauding people there is a good chance that consumers will post details of their experiences, and warnings about the company.
Look for the logo: Check whether the company is a member of a recognised trade body such as ABTA. If you have any doubts, you can verify membership of ABTA online, at www.abta.com.
Pay safe: Wherever possible, pay by credit card and be wary about paying directly into a private individual's bank account.
Check documentation: You should study terms and conditions and be very wary of any companies that don't provide any at all. When booking through a Holiday Club or Timeshare, get the contract thoroughly vetted by a solicitor before signing up.
Trust your instincts: If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Report it: Victims should contact Action Fraud.

Leicestershire Police launches Share the Road campaign - Leicestershire Police and the Road Safety Partnership has today (Tuesday 4 June, 2019) launched a brand new road safety campaign encouraging all road users to respect each other.
The initiative known as, 'Share the Road' focuses on every type of road user, from rambler and horse rider to motorist and cyclist. It aims to reduce the number of traffic collisions and foster mutual respect among all those who use the roads.
PC Shaun Gent, from the Safer Roads Team said: "Now is a good time to launch the campaign because we tend to see a rise in road traffic collisions over June and July as more people are out and about during the lighter evenings and warmer weather. This is very much an educational campaign which is looking to change the way that people behave on the roads, rather than simply punishing people. This will be reflected in our operational work."
Lord Willy Bach, Leicestershire's Police and Crime Commissioner, added: "Public highways are just that, public. They are there for everyone and we should all respect every road user's right to travel in safety. This campaign will help to get that message across."
Life size cut outs of every road using community have been created and will be displayed on notoriously dangerous routes. The safer roads team will then assess road behaviours and respond appropriately.
Show support for Share the Road by placing one of our campaign car stickers on your window – available from your local police station.
For any further information of Leicestershire Police's Share the Road campaign, please go to: https://www.leics.police.uk/sharetheroad

Please Note: Due to Annual Leave the next Rutland Neighbourhood Watch Brief will be published in two weeks' time.

If you feel afraid or threatened call the Police on 999 or for non-urgent calls 101.

Anyone with information about a crime in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland can call Leicestershire Police by dialing 101 (calls cost 15p) or call Crimestoppers free and anonymously on 0800 555 111.
