NUMBER plate thieves have struck again in Keighley.

In the latest incident, the front plate was stolen from a vehicle parked in Woodhouse Road, sometime between Tuesday and Wednesday (May 11 and 12).

Earlier this month, the rear plate was removed from a vehicle parked in Emily Street.

And back in March, both plates were taken when a vehicle in Woodville Road was targeted.

West Yorkshire Police urges motorists to consider getting their number plates fitted with tamper-proof screws.

And it has also issued general crime-prevention advice to help protect your vehicle – and its contents – from theft.

Tips include never leave valuables on show, check you car windows are closed even if you are leaving the vehicle unattended for just a few moments and don’t assume your vehicle has locked when using a key fob. Van owners are encouraged, where possible, not to leave tools or machinery in their vehicle overnight.
