    If you take insulin though your 3.5 ton plus entitlement will have been removed, so if you tow a large caravan you may be towing over the maximum gross vehicle weight allowed.

    This is red tape gone wrong. I would like anyone to stop me towing my caravan and if they want to then they can pay for the caravan . I would be quite happy to take this to every media outlet and even the courts. This really is beaurocrocry gone stupidly wrong. Every diabetic on insulin is entitled to some leisure time. This is against my human rights. Oh yes I am sure every diabetic person on insulin will be up in arms overy this
