West Mercia Police advised drivers to take a number of steps to avoid becoming a victim of vehicle crime.


Motorists should ensure their cars or Van’s are always locked with all valuables removed.

Alarms and immobiliser should always be set when vehicles are left and drivers should use a steering lock if they do not already do so.

Owners of keyless cars should keep them away from doors and windows and in a Faraday pouch or box or metal tin to prevent the signal from the fob from being captured by potential thieves.
