Worry ahead as the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) announce their fears that the growth seen since the decision to Brexit may be just a short term increase. The Economy has performed better than expected since it was announced that British will be leaving the EU and the BCC predicts that we will see a 2.1% increase in GDP compared t last year’s figures. However this in turn sparks a growing concern for the future of the UK’s economy. It is felt that there will be a fall in the value of the British pound in time to come that may have an adverse effect on the economy overall with today’s figures showing that the Pound’s value has fallen to 15% against that of the Dollar and a 10% against that of the Euro according to BCC’S figures so far. The BCC represents over 100’000 UK businesses and is a national body of 52 accredited chambers of commerce in the UK.

Car clocking has always been an issue but it seems it is on the rise once again with lots of people buying a new car and later finding out the mileage has been tampered with.

EU regulation will help reduce the number of car clocking crimes due to a loop hole in the legal system and aim to put changes into place from May 2018. But will that stop these would be wrong doers in their tracks?
