Vehicle Crime


We are still getting reports from people who have left their car running to defrost whilst they have gone back inside, only to come back and realise their car has been stolen. It only takes seconds for someone to jump into a running vehicle and drive away. 

Please do not leave your car unattended at all whilst it is unlocked and the engine is running. 

Some insurance companies won't pay out if the car is stolen in this way.
