Frosty Mornings

Alert message sent 18/01/2020 13:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police


Leaving your car unattended with the keys in the ignition and the engine running whilst being defrosted could result in your car being stolen!

Its an ideal opportunity for passing thieves. This can happen anywhere - so please don't get caught out. It only takes a few minutes for a vehicle to be stolen.
Insurance companies may not pay out for cars stolen in this way and if your house keys are taken as well, you are making your home vulnerable too.

Freeze out car thieves on cold frosty mornings by ensuring that you:
Clear windscreens with de-icer and a scraper and sit in your vehicle while the heater de-mists the windscreen.

If you see anyone acting suspiciously contact the police. Call 101 (non emergency) and 999 (in an emergency)
