is it legal to install an electric fence to my lorry trailer to deter intruders.we were thinking of the similar fenceing used to deter animals on farms
Is it parked on private land?

no it travels to europe and back
There is nothing unlawful per se in use of electric fences.
The only issue is personal injury really. The practical reality is that this just plain would not arise in the circumstances you describe. The people you are trying to deter would not sue for personal injury and anyway would have to get over the hurdle of illegality if they did as they shouldn't be entering your lorry.
The only issue you might want to consider would be if another innocent person touched the van for a legitimate reason and received a shock. You could mitigate that to a degree by signing the presence of electric fencing.
Given the risks that you face though I can completely see why this is an option for you.
Can I clarify anything for you?
