Lorraine Price, head of motor insurance at Direct Line, 已评论: “It is troubling to see the scale of vehicle crime across the UK.

These are not isolated incidents; every year thousands of cars are stolen, or damaged as criminals break in to take items left in them.

No matter where you live in the UK, it is important to be vigilant.

Simple steps such as ensuring your car is double locked and parked in a well-lit area may help deter a criminal.”
