Ten things you should always keep in your car

No one likes to imagine the worst but there's no harm in preparing for it.

What to include in your in-car emergency kit:

  1. Spare coolant, oil and windshield-washer fluid.
  2. A fully-charged mobile or, failing that, a charger that works off your cigarette lighter.
  3. A torch – handy if you break down at night and need to inspect your car's engine or alert a passer by.
  4. Jump leads to kick start the battery should it ever flat line.
  5. An ice scraper – crucial for clearing the windscreen and windows in winter.
  6. A portable air compressor – an easy-to-use, compact tool that can reinflate a slow-leaking tire, very quickly.
  7. Versatile and lightweight, duct tape can act as a quick for just about anything.
  8. Stay hydrated on long journeys, and when waiting for roadside assistance, by keeping spare bottles of water to hand.
  9. Store warm, waterproof clothing in your boot. A warm jacket may prove indispensable when waiting for roadside assistance.
  10. In winter the interior of your car is often colder than the exterior. If you ever breakdown and have to spend some time inside your vehicle, a lit candle (in a safe container) will raise the temperature by a few, vital degrees.
