To avoid property being stolen from a van ensure all valuable items such as tools are removed from the van overnight. Protect your vehicle, secure tools and equipment.

Police have issued the following advise tips:

• Park your vehicle in a secure area (in a garage or behind locked gates, if possible).

• If you park it on a driveway, consider installing motion activated lighting and CCTV. Otherwise, park in a well lit, populated area.

• Where possible, empty your vehicle every night and lock your equipment way in a secure place.

• Forensic security marking kits are available to mark your property and parts on your vehicle. 'High clearance' vehicles are common targets for catalytic converter theft. Mark yours to deter thieves.

• Fit vehicle security equipment within your vehicle.

• Use high visibility signage to deter thieves but stating that no valuables are stored in the van overnight.

• Be aware of people acting suspiciously nearby.
