POLICE GIVE WARNING TO DRIVERS.
With Christmas fast approaching and the arrival of the colder weather, many people leave their engines running and unattended while waiting for their cars to defrost and warm up, making them easy prey for thieves.
After a spate of car thefts in south Liverpool, officers are urging drivers to ensure their cars are not left unlocked or unattended at any time, even for the short time it takes to go back indoors.
Inspector Andy Wignall says: "Criminals know that drivers leave their cars unattended to defrost and warm up. Car thieves and opportunists are sometimes out and about very early. Our message is clear - don't leave your engine running whilst you are not in the car."
Anyone with information on crime should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
