The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is changing the world forever. Previous epidemics, such as the 1918 flu pandemic and the bubonic plague in the 14th century, had enormous consequences and this latest pandemic is now impacting all our social, political and economic systems. But, while it’s important to acknowledge and remain aware of the tragedies that COVID-19 has brought for many people, there are plenty of positives and benefits that provide a more optimistic outlook than much of our doom-laden news.

The European open border policy, introduced by the Schengen Agreement in 1985, has undeniably been a great benefit to both the movement of people and free trade. But Brexit means that everything is about to change. Regardless of whether or not a trade agreement is reached, the UK will leave the single market and the customs union on the 31st December. The British Border Force along with HM Customs and Excise face significant challenges to keep people and goods moving in and out of the UK while at the same time maintaining a high level of security. Additional visa requirements will mean more immigration checks at air and sea ports and it’s estimated that the number of customs declarations with increase enormously from 60 million to 300 million a year.

New research highlights how the uncertainty around COVID-19 alongside fears of becoming stranded abroad has led to the majority (83%) of British holidaymakers saying they would prefer to take their vacations in the UK. This change has driven a huge increase in staycations and the trend looks set to continue into 2021.
There is one guaranteed way that a family staycation will be ruined and that’s to receive a call from the police telling you that your home has been burgled. You will immediately need to return home to assess what’s missing and possibly any damage that may have been caused. We have previously provided some guidance on home security but it’s worth considering exactly how burglars identify and choose their targets so that you can take effective precautions before going on holiday and avoid becoming a staycation crime statistic.

In our previous post addressing Rural and Farming Security Challenges it was noted that rural crime has changed from opportunist theft of maybe a few tools to organised crime gangs specifically targeting high end farm machinery and livestock. The latest 2020 rural crime report from NFU Mutual acknowledges that we are living in challenging times for the countryside and the farming industry. The COVID-19 pandemic initially appeared to have driven a reduction in rural theft, but more recently there are signs that thieves have become more active and better organised.
