This is just to remind residents not to leave running vehicles unattended, while they are being defrosted.
A vehicle has been stolen in the early hours, yesterday (14/12) in the Aylesbury area. The driver started the vehicle and then nipped back into his house to get water.
The car was only left unattended for a matter of moments, which is all it takes if an opportunist criminal happens to be in the area.
Even if you have locked your vehicle you are still not safe as it is easy to smash a window to get in.
If your car is stolen in this way, not only will you have the inconvenience of arranged other transport, but your insurance company will probably not pay out.
