NB: Over the last two or three months the most common offences have been theft of or from motor vehicles using the digital relay system for cars (see above), that have a fob instead of a key, or the theft of number plates. This might seem relatively minor, but it can cause considerable inconvenience either replacing them or when they had been used in crime by the thieves.

Please get a Faraday Pouch (£5?) and use it and get security screws from the Police (ring beat officer) and get them fitted.  The thieves will go to the next car which doesn’t have them fitted.
