REPORTS of number plate thefts have increased since the start of the new year, say the upper Calder Valley’s Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT).
On a positive note, no specific area has been targeted.
A team spokesman said: “Inquiries are continuing. In the meantime, please help us by being vigilant. If possible, park your car securely on a night and preferably in a garage. You could also fit anti-theft number plate screws which can be bought at car accessory shops.
