    Has anyone seen the sunday press which claims that a well known cosmetic used by millions of women actually works better than any of the expensive anti-flash plates that are currently on sale.

    Anybody any idea what it is - I just got flashed again - An SAS camera van parked behind a tree. :eek:

    Probably hairspray or nail varnish, but I wouldn't chance it.
    Get a snooper or another detection device.

    I've had a quick squint in the Observor and couldn't find anything.

    It could be hair shine spray but not sure what else it could be that would be worth putting on a plate instead of plate spray:crazy:

    The anti-flash spray would only be effective (if at all) against Gatso's. The SAS van uses a hand held gun, which doesn't flash. :eek:

    Could be foundation smeared over the number plate, that stuff can hide a multitude of sins. ;) :D :D

    When I lived in Belgium we used Hairspray to good effect. But I wouldnt try it now as technology is getting better as the days go by. Apart from which I have matured :rolleyes:
