Police have issued a warning to motorists after a spate of vehicle break-ins.


Nearly 30 reports of thefts from vehicles have been phoned in to Preston Police in the last 72 hours.

All of these have seen car doors already unlocked.

A police spokesman said the incidents were dotted all over the city.

He said: “If you regularly leave your car unlocked you could find yourself becoming a victim of theft and worse still you may find that your insurance provider may not cover your policy.


“If you’re reading this please go and double check your car.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Preston Police on 101
