Local News | Bank Holiday Car Crime Prevention Advice | Andover & VillagesIf you’re heading out to the countryside this weekend, help keep your vehicle safe by following a few simple tips:

– Never leave valuable possessions such as handbags, laptops, phones or sat navs on show inside your car. Even items of little value, such as shopping bags and clothing, may tempt a thief.

– Don’t hide your valuables in the boot. Someone may be watching.

– Always lock your car, wind up the windows and close the sunroof, even if you’re only leaving it for a few minutes.

– Double check it’s locked. It only takes a few seconds for your valuables to be stolen from an unlocked car.
