Motorists are being warned to avoid leaving cash or valuables on display following a number of break-ins across Barnsley.

South Yorkshire Police said there had been an increase in thefts in recent weeks, with car windows smashed for small amounts of cash left on show.

Detective Chief Inspector Deb Mahmood said: “Please don’t make yourself a target for opportunistic thieves, especially in the run up to Christmas when you may have gifts for loved ones in your car.”
