We were travelling anti clockwise on the M25 this afternoon and spotted a Police 4 x 4 doing 40mph. We over took it and pulled in front of it. Whilst over taking, I, in the passenger seat noticed the police looking at out tow hitch. We traveled a little further before being pulled over by them. They pointed out that our breakaway cable was secured around the tow ball as we had been previously advised to do so. They advised that this is illegal carrying an on the spot fine of £30 and 3 points. They pointed out a place to clip the cable right underneath our towbar. They also told us that our towing mirrors were not sufficient and advised getting ones on extendable arms so that they stand out enabling the driver to see the whole length of the caravan and a distance behind. This again carries a £30 fine and 3 points. Fortunately they were just advising and were very nice about it. Needless to say we are now researching more suitable mirrors and deciding whose job it will be to crawl under the tow bar to attach the cable! Nickie
