from cavers cars, March 2000:
On Saturday 25th March a cavers car was broken into at the P8 lay-by. Clothes and personal belongings were stolen along with some jewellery. Several cars were also broken into at Stanage Edge. If you are caving in the area please be careful and don't leave anything valuable in your car. Watch out.... there's thieving bastards about.
