Inspector Heather Sutton, district commander for Newark and Sherwood, said the policing priority for the district in the last four months has been auto crime.

"We find that auto crime has a considerable impact on the victim, often items used for their work are stolen, or theft and damage is caused to their pride and joy. We have undertaken a variety of operation and made use of both overt and covert tactics.

"I have just been successful in asking for support from our force Roads Crime Team, who will bolster the numbers and skill set to help us with some of these operations.

"Theft of Land Rovers parts are particular difficult to investigate as the parts don’t have identifying marks on them, once removed they are completely untraceable.

"The complete shell from one car can be transferred to another in a matter of hours. We encourage Land Rover owners to security mark every part and display a sign to say that parts have been security marked to try and ward off potential thieves.

"We rely heavily on information and intelligence from the public, please report any intelligence or information to Nottingham Police on 101 or via crime stoppers on 0800 555 111."
