The UK trade body for the oil fired heating industry, OFTEC, is warning oil users to think about the risk of oil theft in their area and take the necessary precautions to protect their tanks from theft.
In recent years oil thefts have increased across the country due to exceptionally harsh winters and higher fuel prices. This trend is expected to continue as the weather turns colder. Therefore, OFTEC is warning oil users to remain vigilant and take the necessary precautions now to protect their oil and reduce their risk of theft throughout the winter period.
