Sleeping bags tip for festival security
Bookmark and Share
Those spending summer music festivals in tents can keep their valuables more secure by hiding them in their sleeping bags by night, it has been advised.

A survey by insurance firm Aviva revealed 46 per cent of the population has been to a festival at some time or other.

However, it noted, thefts and loss of valuables does happen and it noted there were 650 thefts from tents last year.

It did note, however, that camping equipment can be included in some home insurance policies as personal belongings.

People buying sleeping bags may wish to look for ones that are also very comfortable, as well as secure, since these will help festival-goers to enjoy some good nights of sleep so they can make the most of their time at the event.

Those attending the Glastonbury Festival can leave their most valuable items in lockers, the Festival's Fine Guide notes.

Like Aviva, it recommended the use of sleeping bags for storing valuables.
