The local area is currently reporting thefts of Catalytic Converters from vehicles. It seems they are not the only ones as so is other parts of the UK.

If you spot any suspicious activity with a vehicle that is happening there and then then ring 999. If you discover a theft after it has happened you can ring 101 or report online on Please can you give as much description as possible of persons and vehicles if any are in progress or have been spotted.
