Increase in Vehicle Theft

Good evening.


We have seen an increase in theft and attempted theft of vehicle is the rural areas over the past few weeks. It would seem that the targeted vehicles are primarily Toyota Hilux manufactured in 2015 and after. Regardless of the vehicle make and model you may own, I would strongly recommend following the link below, which will take you to Police.uk with some advice on how to maximise the safety of your vehicle and prevent theft as much as possible.

Please feel free to share this link with friends and family to spread the word and keep everyone's vehicles safe this winter!


Many thanks,
