Officers make a crime call.

POLICE in Nuneaton and Bedworth are cracking down on mobile phone theft by handing out crime-busting stickers to children.

Officers arrived at Alderman Smith School, Nuneaton, this morning to launch their initiative.

The stickers will be distributed to all other schools in the area over the next couple of weeks.

Warwickshire Police and Mercia FM launched the campaign to encourage people to make a note of their mobile phone serial number in the event of it being stolen.

They will be encouraged to contact officers, giving details of the number for the phone to be disabled so that the thief is unable to use it.
