Thanks for the update it must have put your mind to rest over the tyres. I only had one caravan puncture in all my years, but car punctures seem to blight me now. Earlier this year a Continental picked up a thin sliver of metal, very difficult even to find even using bubbles. Non reparable position. £220 replacement cost and it had done less than 5000 miles.A result. The tyre was inspected, and the item in the attached picture was found in the caseing. What are the chances of that happening, expecially in a 2mile journey. The main downside is the cost of another new tyre, along with replaceing the Bailey spare wheel winder, which is totally mangled up. Still, a relief that it didn't occur in a worse situation like on a busy motorway.
Thanks for all the thoughts and replies.
