    Going to get a steering wheel lock tomorrow. There must be a secure car park in Manchester with working CCTV.

    Your not filling me with confidence.

    I think it's a steering wheel lock, a length of chain around the wheels and a big dog on the back seat.

    Hi Andy

    I wish I could leave it at home but it's getting back home at 10pm that's the problem, so the car is the only option.
    Been told the car park at the GMEX is good but have no experience of it.

    Anyone live near the city centre that would lend me a parking space in your drive ;-)

    Thanks again. I'm not bothered about the cost just that it's going to be safe.

    Just got back from taking the kids to see 1 Direction. I left the car as suggested in the Arndale Centre and it was fine. Cost £15 for 9 hours.

    Thanks

    I normally park in the long stay at Manchester when flying for work, but that's not my car so I don't care. The Crown Plaza should be ok

    Andy. I do a lot of work at Manchester airport, and yes you do get the odd break in. But it is the odd one. The Crown Plaza has a good reputation

    when i go to concerts there i park at Dilworth Street, it's only £2 a pop and i've never had a prob there - generally gets a lot of business it seems so it's not like anyone trying anything would be unobserved so maybe that puts them off.
