I recently had an extremely minor accident in a van - I reversed into someone's garage and move a couple of tiles - no damage to the van.

Do I have to declare this to my car insurance?

I considered whether it was fair to the driver to place this (with video) on here, but then realised VLH is unlikely to increased the video audience much considering it is in/on The Daily Mirror.

May just be a timely reminder to other drivers, we are however all capable of a moment of distraction or slip.

For my own curiosity, is it still the case that 'legally' you are required to notify police if you collide/injure a dog, but not if a cat ?  I'm fairly sure it was to do with dogs being licensed where cats were not.

If you hit a dog you are meant to report it I hit a horse once that escaped a field.

I think your correct nomads. As far as I'm told you don't have to report hitting a cat.

You're right Nomad, you own a dog but keep a cat. The other side of the coin is that if your dog goes next door and destroys their garden you have to pay for it however there is no comeback if your cat does it.

It's a good job there was no wine in those blue trays... they are from the wine club and normally come in a box of six bottles per tray.

Seems to be from the Enfield hub, as for a different tray it's the same as we currently use in our store, all blue for us.

Following Dirty Traygate all our old green trays were swapped out for new blue trays.  But recently had a load of shrink-wrapped old green trays returned to our store, presumably having been deep-cleaned.  Have they hell! They are filthy!

Could be worse you could have delivery cages to work that someone has clearly been sick all over.

Anyone from the dotcom manager and above can request to see footage at any time.

A three year old boy has died following a collision with a Tesco delivery van while skateboarding.

The worst of all tragedies, my heart goes out to all connected with this.  :'(
