Surge in Land Rover thefts

Drivers are being urged to be security conscious after a surge in thefts of Land Rovers in Derbyshire, with 12 vehicles taken between November and January. “Land Rovers and 4x4 are always popular vehicles, but especially in the wake of recent floods and bad, winter weather, making them a hot prospect for thieves,” said Adrian Davenport, police liaison officer for vehicle security specialists Tracker.
